+1.

Mine was really really dirty, but working fine, when my wife decided enough is enough and cleaned it as instructed on the cover.

It has completely lost its ability to pick up dust after the wash. Need to order another one soon.

I have two dusters, and noticed recently that the one stored inside the car(boot) is not picking up dust as efficiently as the one stored inside the house.

My hunch is that, the duster's wax treated strands gets affected if the car is frequently parked under hot sun. Not sure of this, though.

So those who store the duster in the car boot might want to take note.

Pathetic experience at one of its largest stores in punjab!!

i am really disappointed with the Jopasu Duster now. after the first piece conked off in 3 months, i got a fresh one assuming it was the wash which destroyed the older one.

However, this one is even worse. it stopped being effective in just 15 days!! it does still pick up dust but leaves a very rough feel to the paint.

its almost like its leaving behind some residue. After a wipe with the duster, i hate the feel every time i touch the paint. only a Quick detail with ONR makes it normal.

Never getting jopasu again and will not recommend it to others.

what are my options?

That's strange, I am using one from last 2 months. I use it almost daily, it's dirty like hell, But still it picks up dust like the day one and yes, no rough finish on paint as such.

@funkyp, could it be an imitation product and not the real one? You stated that you got it for 350 instead of the usual 550+...

Maybe ...

I ordered one from Snapdeal last Sun. Got a call this morning from the courier guy, expecting to receive it later today.

Got the product delivered in a neatly packed box. Full marks to Snapdeal for the delivery.

As for the duster: Used it 3 times so far. Very impressed with the job it does. With construction work going on in the adjacent space where another apartment building is coming up, you can imagine the amount of dust my car accumulates, even while sitting in the basement parking. The Jopasu duster is able to neatly absorb all the dust and gives the car washed-just-now look. This is beneficial from another important aspect as well - I'll also be able to save already-scarce water in this scorching Bangalore summer. With the results I've observed in this short time period, I think I can go atleast 2 weeks without a wash, with the duster doing the job. I'm following the instructions mentioned on the cover. Use the duster and re-pack it neatly in the cover it came with.

Dusted the car again this morning before riding to office, it takes hardly 2-3 mintues to dust off the entire body, including the windshields. I'm one happy camper!

Earlier, i used to wash the car once a week with shampoo and all. But since the duster came, It's already been over a month without a wash, Everytime in need to take the car out, 5 mins and the car is good to go.

Really, duster has made my life very easy, even if this one lasts 6 months, I'll buy another one.
