Anyone tried the California Car Duster?
http://www.calcarduster.com/originalDuster.asp

I'm looking into cuz I have to park under a tree and theres pollen and whatnot on my car every morning.

How bout the Big Blue Drying Towel? http://www.properautocare.com/bigbludryint.html

I bought some towels before from the store and they all leave little fibers all over the car and it just pisses me off. If you guys know of anything that works better or cheaper let me know.

I have the Duster and it is WELL worth the $$$. Your car just has to be dry of course. Go for it. I also use the "Absorber." Dries my car in less than 4-5 minutes!! These two things are a must!!! The Absorber is not a towel, so there are no streaks left behind, and no fibers. It'* extremely absorbant. Like some kind of rubber or something. Comes in different colors. It'* just as good, if not better than Chaimos (or however you spell it). That "Big Blue Towel" sounds like the same thing as the Absorber.

I use a chamois too...they are great. However, I'm really wanting a Cali duster to take care of the pollen and dust after a good washing

Its the pollen in the air, and I work across the street for the largest construction project in North America, so it gets dusty
