Do California Car Dusters scratch paint?

My garage has horrible dust so I've been using one. I had horrible scratches in the paint mostly from a non-"touchless" car wash I've been going to but I wonder if my CCD had contributed? The Mas has really thin paint.

TIA

As long as your car isn't DIRTY than it is fine. If your car has been in the rain or has a layer of dirt on the car I would wash it.

Right. It's great for DUSTING the car, not cleaning the car. Pollen, dust, etc it works great. Especially if you have the car clayed and waxed. I would not use it if the car is obviously dirty and in need of cleaning.

Thanks. I just spent $150 getting all the scratches and scuffs buffed out and I'm going to start using the thing again. If I don't, I need to get the thing washed like every week or two. If I use it to dust I can easily go 6 weeks between washings, frequently more, so it really makes a huge difference. All I really have here in the way of dirt is dust.

Why would you ever take a car like that through a car wash and use the Cal Duster? It's your car and you're the one making the payments; you can do whatever you damn well please But, a car like that deserves better IMHO. The paint on Maserati is extremely thin. The car wash not only uses harsh chemicals to clean the car, but introduces swirls and scratches, The duster only adds to the damage. I've never been a fan of the duster and this is just my feelings here. I could never understand how an oily cotton fiber gets better when there's more dirt and grit on it. The best thing is to wash the car. There are other products such as Optimum No Rinse wash that basically only use up about 3 gallons of water to wash the car. You wash with the No Rinse and wipe off with microfiber towels. Zymol also makes a duster that we use at Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance when the cars are on the field http://www.glisteningperfection.com/duster.php. Hope this adds some light on the subject.

I didn't realize the damage the non-touchless wash did, otherwise I certainly wouldn't have been going there. I can't wash the car myself I live in an apartment building and we have no hose, no driveway and no drain. I'll check out that duster, thanks.
