I also had a bitter experience with the ONDOT courier guys, though it was not an order from Jopasu but a recent order from a different online site. I had ordered 2 T-shirts from the same vendor, when it was delivered I was away in office so I asked the courier guy to drop the parcel at my landlords place. When I returned in the evening, I picked up the parcel and on opening it I found only 1 T-shirt inside but the invoice mentions 2 quantity. There was a clear sign of tampering with the sealed polypack, it was torn and 1 tshirt was apparently removed and then tape applied. I informed the seller and fortunately they redispatched one tshirt again.

ONDOT courier is to be avoided at any cost.

What I understood was in some places On Dot courier has got direct/fast
delivery but for other places they go via different stop over's (for example my parcel was sent to cochin and from there it was redirected) hence delay. Also they might be using train services for forwarding these parcels otherwise it could cost them more (if sending by air) due to the size of the packing?

This courier service is very very poor and going on just because they may be cheaper and they still courier the products which are chemical in nature and liquid and which other services dont.

The Duster is very nice and appreciated by many hence great demand for it. Also no one else marketing this product and other duster available in the market may not be good as this one. However the car wash, shampoo etc are available in the market from various brand/manufacturers.
So, imo,he is trying to make it as a combination pack alongwith the duster and trynig to sell out the wash and shampoo also - Good marketing strategy

I am happy with the long duster (with handle) for exterior cleaning , but the mini duster leaves lots of cotton fib on dash board which are clearly visible.

From ebay, only the combo pack is available. But in Pune, the duster is sold individually. If you have some contacts in Pune, it is worthy trying that way.

He will probably come with a new listing i.e Dusters and microfibre cloth(magic wash) in one pack and the car wash and shampoo(liquid items) in another pack. And also he is planning to change the courier(as per his last email recieved) service for the duster pack for faster delivery.?

He is planning more precisely to change the liquid shampoos with a more soid one and yes their dusters are quite good.

Jopasu now come with 3 seperate listings

1-Duster only Rs.475 ( + Rs.70 shipping cost)

2-Combination of pack of 4 items - Rs. 1085+ rs.90

3-small pack (2 items) Rs.675 + shipping

No more liquid items included in these packs so seems he might have changed the courier company also?

So those who (@sbraj) want Only DUSTER can now go for it !

Default Review with Images

I think this thread has been just over taken by the courier issues. To bring it back on track, I have included a photo review here. I have just uploaded some before and after images which talk of this duster as whole. I am very impressed and I would recommend this product too. Now over to review.

Besides the Duster, the Magic Wipe (microfibre cloth?) also doing wonders. It is very easy to wipe the car after washing. The shampoo also giving good shining to the car.
These products are definitely worth buying! (even if one has to wait for more days due to the Courier fiasco - unless jopasu changed the courier service now?)

@vrrraju Thanks for the Pictorial Review of the duster, now I'm really interested in getting one for my car

btw Is this Mini Duster and the Magic Glove which is included in the Gift Pack, worth paying Rs.410 over the Duster and microfiber cloth Combo which costs about Rs.765 ?

Hi Folks,

I have been using the Jopasu duster for the past 4 months, worked excellently, especially since I have a black scorpio. The trouble began when I washed it recently, following their instructions, cold wash (without detergent though) and dried it. But now it doesn't clean the way it used to, in fact leaves dust streaks. I wonder what has happened.

Any suggestions or should I buy a new one? Also, there is this site called north20 or something that allows import of the california duster for 1700 odd. worth it?

I have a set of California Duster, it works great. can clean a car neat within 2 mins, and jelly blade works great as well.
