California dash duster

Is it okay to use this on the wood trim inside the car in addition to the dash? I know that the dash duster has some kind of wax substance on it to help it pick up dust, so I'd hate to mess up the wood trim if it leaves any kind of residue...

The inside should be fine. I've used these a few times on my older cars, my car now just hasent gotten dusty enough. The duster works by just attracting particles to it and doesnt leave any residue behind. I'd say go for it and it'll keep your car clean. On the outside of the car I am a littl hesitant because I dont know if it will leave swirl marks on the car.

It hasn't one mine either.

However, I am very carefull when using it.
I only use it when the car is virtually clean - except for dust - and there is no road grime or dead bugs on it. I also give the duster a firm shaking before and after use.

So far, no duster related swirl marks.

There are however some other marks from the cat which was on my car - and the car wash fucking up etc.

At the end of the day - it's just a car. I plan to get a new one anyways... Maybe 1er convertable!
