      Jopasu is a decent alternative. Considering that CA duster costs more, difficult to procure and mind you, is heavier too, the Jopasu works fine
      As for washing, i wash with an organic cleaner once in 3-4 months and i have used it for over 6-7 months post which i feel its best to discard it.
      I have used the CA duster too and it will run for a year+ so even though we pay more, it will give the same bang for the buck.

      The effect of CA duster on our Civic. It was swirl free and did a detailing on Jan 1st - 2013. Within 2 months, we got these
      I am not disappointing to anyone using it, but you'll get these swirls ASAP.
      The CA is little high quality, then think about Jopasu duster...

      Agree that Jopasu creates Swirls but what do you suggest as an equivalent alternative i.e. some method where we spend 10-15 mins every morning on the car and remove the dust as Jopasu does without causing swirls?

      Any MF(just normal quality) towel will do the job. I am using Xstatic MF towels for dusting. This is not creating this much damage on the paint.

      Over the period of time, its REALLY hard to overcome these swirl marks. When I park the car on the sunlight, it looks like cobweb covered all over the place. Even in the night, under yellow light, you see more webs.

      I am surprised at the level of swirls in 2 months, its rare to see this. It maybe because of wiping the surface more than just the duster.

      One thing to note- an incorrect technique is to run the duster will cause more swirls than normal. The duster should be run lightly on the surface and not rubbed, which is what i have seen many do.
      Its quite natural for this to happen as the CA duster in particular is heavy and weighs down on the surface.

      Ideally, just use a blow dry to remove the dust if its possible.

      I am using the CA dusters for light dusting. Since its too heavy, I used it very mild on the surface.
      Is there any correct technique to use these dusters? Please let us know and it will be helpful.

      On a side note, I am using CA dusters for the past 5 years and Jopasu - 2 years. The current stock of CA is my 3rd and Jopasu is 2nd.

      The only observation i have had is that people rub the surface more than needed with the duster. What i mean is that one should just have it "touch" the surface and run it very lightly.
      Most of the times when people are in a hurry or when the duster weighs on the hand, it falls onto the surface more than just a touch and hence causes a rubbing action more than a gliding action.
      I hope i could convey it the best way possible via text! ( as it can be explained better via a live demo)

      I did a detailing session on my i10 last December 1st. I use just Xstatic MF towel for dusting. I dip the towel in water, squeeze it and wipe on the surface. This is my daily job and it worked well to keep the surface in a very good shape, almost no swirl.

      Due to some issues, I am using this CA on Civic which I really want to avoid. I am trying to get a good washing person who can hear and do the proper procedures.
      Please avoid these so called dusters if you can. This is my personal experience and dusters WILL create tons of swirl.
