Well apparently the company has changed its policy to keep the sales going. The Jopasu duster I bought about 4 years ago came with a written note that said "DO NOT WASH THE DUSTER", and "THE DIRTIER IT GETS, THE BETTER IT WORKS". Supposedly the duster strands are treated with some kind of "baked-on" wax that aids the dust attracting properties of the duster.

I changed my first duster after using it for over 1 and a half year, as its dust attracting capacity had greatly reduced. Now the second duster too was full with dust and based on the experiences of other posters here, I decided to rinse it with water and re-use it, instead of getting another new one. However, I have found that the dust attracting properties of the duster has been greatly reduced after washing it. It has not gone back to its original capacity and only manages to attract 50% of the dust, that too after more than 2 wipes over the same area. Apparently the wax coating too was washed off when I washed the duster and therefore its capacity is reduced. It does the job, but it takes more time and effort to do so.

I think the product was originally designed to work till it was full with dust and then you were supposed to replace it with a new one. But considering the Indian market where we want everything to last forever, the company is now advising its customers to wash the duster with a mild soap and re-use it, instead of replacing it.

@ Mods - I understand that this is my third subsequent post in this thread, however i was unable to edit earlier post to give update.

@Shakensoul - sorry to barge into your thread , however update seems to be relevant.

Wanted to make full use of my half day holiday (it is election day in Maharastra), after taking care of my basic responsibility - voting. (Look at pic )



Took over car cleaning job moment i got Jopasu kit. Result are posted below.

Review -

Duster - Results were fine. in my opinion , it was not great considering cost of Rs 350/-. However , it is handy to clean your car in cases like - you are late for office and just want to wipe of dust quickly without getting into mess and spoiling your office attire. It is Handy.

Cloth - Used it to wipe water after washing. Results are amazing. it soaked all water leaving dry sparkling surface. Earlier i used to get spots - either dry water drops or some other water marks. Something i was looking for

With this cloth, i am satisfied. Worth Rs 150/- (if same option is not available at lower cost like microfibre cloth from reliance ). Highly recommended.

Shampoo - Used it but not sure about effect since car is almost new. However it smells like typical .. say hair remover solution ! it produces less froth.

Hope to find input useful.

Thanks for the review idea1979.The Jopashu duster is a messiah for people like me having a huge and unmanageably unclean Scorpio.Especially the roof top cannot be reached normally, until I try some ape like tricks. So the Jopashu comes in very handy here. And as you rightly put it, it does not mess up our attire.
Its news that the cloth duster is so very dutiful and nice. I'll get one very soon. thanks!
And the shampoo - have lots of them with me.

Purchased Japasu combo pack recently and duster cleans fine. But it collected lot of dust and looks dirty. I do not know how long it will perform. But they missed the free shampoo pack and received only apology for missing the item

Went on a buying spree for the automobile shampoos of various hues from various metros.And it appears I am getting too lazy to apply them and consume 'em all.
Now with the surplus stock am seriously considering putting a brand new thread, to seek enlightened views on as to whether these can be used fruitfully on human heads!That can be a better way of consuming these.

Lol! I would strongly advise you against putting in on your head! If you have someone to wash the car for you, then ask them to use it. As a last resort, you can always pour a bit in your mop water.

I have similar dusters bought from Korea 2 years back. Here these dusters are quite common as most of the people use it. But it gets dirty pretty early.

I rarely using duster(only during long drives) as car washer comes every morning for washing.
