Thanks for the info. I'll try at the nearest reliance store. And I will be using it on similar place, where there are bad roads and construction work in it's surroundings. Hope I won't get disappointed.

By the way my wife thought I had gone crazy ordering a duster for 800 that too for a car!!! Our car wash guy charges us "only" 250 a month for the job!
Why don't you tell your wife that there is a separate thread on TeamBHP just for this 'duster', which has completed 50 pages of discussions?

Edit: It's now 51 pages!

Guys, Is there any way to rejuvenate the jopasu duster? I gently washed the duster with a very mild detergent meant for woolen clothes and the duster is not picking up dust like it used to before washing.

I checked with the Reliance Autozone in HSR about the Jopasu duster, and they say it is out of stock. Any idea where around Marathahalli you might get it?

My duster lost its dust picking power after using it for 15-20 times max.
Washing it with cold water and drying it in shade did not help!!

Right now it is as good as a broom.

Is there any better duster than this?

The instructions are given in the pack itself for your reference.
Where does all the dust that it absorbs/removes go?

In my case it gets saturated with dust after heavy dusting over a long period. Then it starts depositing dust on the car if I rub it on its surface. When it happens I shake it vigorously or strike it on a clean plain surface repeatedly making it leave a lot of dust behind. Then it regains its dust attracting properties, till it gets saturated again that is.

Do you also experience anything like this?

where can i source the car duster in mumbai? i was hoping to find it cheaper outside compared to buying it through ebay.

I am extremely dissatisfied by the job done by these car cleaners in the complex. They hardly clean anything and mess up the windscreen even more. i would rather spend 2 mins every day before i leave and use the duster.

Jopasu is good and not many dusters come close to jopasu except for California duster which is atleast x5 times expensive.

dude, it is very difficult to keep a dark colored car clean. Believe me, you end up with so many swirls trying to clean the car. The best option will be spend around 15-20 minutes everyday to clean it by yourself.

Steps I follow are (might sound stupid as I spend 20 minutes everyday in the morning).

1. Wipe off the dust using Jopasu
2. Damp microfiber cloth (usually a mixture of car shampoo & water to damp the cloth).
3. Wipe the surface using this cloth. If the surface feels a bit rough, I will use another microfiber that is wet to remove the dust that would make the surface feel smooth.
4. Use another damp microfiber to clean the windscreen. Finish off using a dry microfiber to remove water streaks off the windscreen, rear glass and the windows.

Wax once in 2 weeks to keep the shine and protect the paint from natural elements.

Their ebay shop is still active and some packages are available there with different combinations of their products. I came to know about Jopasu from TeamBhpian "kavu75" who's a friend of mine also. He said he has been using it for quite some time and demonstrated it on his Aveo for me when I visited him in last weekend. It definitely looked a lot better in cleaning neatly and safely than the regular car washer guy at my apartment.

So what do you guys suggest?

Jopasu Gift Pack | eBay

Is it advisable to go for the set of 4 items for 1315? Will it be VFM?

Cheers!

I went for "Jopasu Gift Pack (Small)" which costs INR 799/-. The package contains a car duster and micro fiber cloth as well. I feel this is the best among all others as a tester

Reliance autozone in Gurgaon sells the same at discounted price of Rs 470 (sticker price is 575/- only). Bought a replacement last week.
