Guys,

So what is the final take on Jopasu Duster Self cleaning. I mean how to clean the duster itself? While buying it from the duster, Jopasu sales rep said it can be washed, no problems !!! However I read on post earlier that after washing the duster, its capacity to attract dust reduces(Static charge).

Has anyone tried cleaning/washing the duster and has not faced problems? Please let me know, my car attracts lot of dust and now after 4-5 months of use the duster looks very dirty.

Has any one tried

Yes i have both. California duster is little bit better in quality and clean-ability than Jopasu. Jopasu is priced much cheaper. California duster comes with wooden handle but jopasu comes with fiber handle which is lighter but quality of this fiber handle is bit of a suspect, even the MD of Jopusa has agreed and he told he will take steps to change the handle. So i can conclude Jopasu is best available duster in India and cleans almost like California duster. Here is the link which shows my California duster.

I did clean with water + mild soap solution and dried it under shade. Took couple of days to completely dry. The bristles are not as soft as when new, but I do not notice any problems in dust pickup capability.

The best thing during wash is that the bristles do not fall off..not a single strand fell off.

I ordered the Jopasu Duster combo pack on ebay and was delivered within 2 days.

The duster came in a neat package and it picks up dust well. For the price it's being sold, I'd have been happy if the duster had more strands.

You can wash it when it gets too dirty. I have washed mine at least 4 times so far and its capabilities haven't degraded.

Hey Guys!
My dad is going to Bengaluru for a few days for an office trip.
I heard about Jopasu delivering products at your doorstep by someone in Pune. Is it possible in Bengaluru too? Can somebody provide me the contacts of the concerned persons in Bengaluru? I would ask them to deliver it to my dad's hotel.
Best Regards
Abhinav Sharma

After reading the opinions, ordered it through ebay.in (using Rs.150/- discount coupon) and received last Saturday. Just tested and seems to work fine. A full dusting not yet done due to rains everyday.

People in bangalore can contact Mr Ramesh, SV & Co. Ph: 080-50610090.

My brother who lives in bangalore just got it from this person. Even though it wasnt door delivered, it was bought to a place near to where my brother is staying.

Thanks neutralgrey. It is a better than option than buying from Ebay. Though I havent had probs thru Ebay, looking at some posts here, it would be nice to speak to someone for the product delivery.

Actually, now there is no problem of getting it through ebay.in. Many people are getting it now without any issues. I think Jopasu has changed the courier. If you have any discount coupon of ebay.in, it is better to get it from ebay.in by availing of disocunt.
