Ordered a set of the duster and the mini duster for Rs 675 from Snapdeal on 20th, and got the kit on 24th.

Used it on my Fiesta today and the result was good. The long handle makes it easy to access all parts of the roof, and cleaning the entire car took only 3 minutes. I am a happy customer. Let me see how long it lasts.

Friends car accessories near Kamatchi hospital in Chennai was selling jopasu for quite some time. I had posted this on this thread earlier. However, now they are selling a duster which looks similar to Jopasu as Jopasu. I bought it this time in a hurry and only realized the issue after a few days. Though the duster is doing good, I really doubt whether it is the original jopasu or some duplicate product.

The handles of these dusters aren't very sturdy and tend to brake off easily. The good news is that a one inch pvc pipe fits perfectly over the stub that is left behind and can be used to extend it each time it breaks. Of course, you still need a stub

Here's a picture of mine. It doesn't shine like it used to, but still gets dust off.

I ordered a Jopasu gift pack ( 1 pc each of Jopasu car duster, magic glove, magic wipe, mini duster) from Jopasu ebay store on 22nd night and received delivery today by fedex. As this is monsoon time and car is wet most of the time, a single piece of magic wipe is not sufficient for multi-stage car cleaning.

I have come across the following link on ebay where 4 pcs of microfibre towels are available for Rs 235/-:

Has anyone use these and has any first hand experience of these?

Got a combo pack consisting of the duster and the mini-duster from the official Jopasu dealer (jopasucarcare) on eBay. Used a discount coupon and bought it for Rs. 650.

410 of these have been sold!

I had purchased Jopasu Car duster from E-bay for Rs 499 in Jul 13 after reading the reviews on this forum. Its an excellent product & definitely a must buy. I was facing issues to clean my Safari as it has to be parked on the road (no parking available in our building for cars), it eventually becomes very dirty & cleaning was becoming a cumbersome process. Thankfully, now the process can be completed in 10 minutes flat !!

Nice info. Thanks all fellas on board.

Actually, I am fed up in cleaning dust particles from the car floor corners. Sand & muddy particles are hardly fixed in floor mat material. To remove it out, using right from small brushes to paint brush but bit difficult to clean completely and a bit labouries & time consuming job.

I think Jopasu serve the purpose well. Anyone who uses this duster on the car floor, pl confirm.

I don't think this duster would take care of the car floor corners as its suitable for exterior cleaning. These have braids which are wax coated, it might get stuck with parts if used in the corners or may get worn out easily. you can consider using other products listed, to identify the right product which meets your requirement.

Guys, my duster now is dirty like hell and now it don't picks up the dirt, way it used to do earlier. So, now how do I wash it?? I fear that I may damage the duster, if i just washed it with detergent.

Mine is too. I guess we just have to bite the bullet and do it. If it doesn't work out, then one has to consider whether or not to replace it with a new one.

I'll surely buy one more, I found it to be very vfm. Mine is around 6 months old and I hope, it works for another 6 after washing

The user instructions are the following :-

Don't use duster on wet surface.
When duster stops picking dust wash it with mild soap.
Always keep duster in duster bag.
Shake duster before and after cleaning.

I ordered the duster day before yesterday and got it today. Super fast delivery. This is my 3rd duster in 3 years.

I had once washed the duster only with water. I then dried it in shade for a day and could use it for two more months after which it again stopped picking the dirt. I noticed that the strands turned little hard after the wash. My suggestion is to go for a new one.

Hi guys, just recd the Jopasu large combo gift pack, ordered from snapped for Rs 1190 with 10% offer at final price of Rs 1071. Small query the Invoice and the sticker on the package both give description as Jopasu Large Combo Gift Pack + Freebies but did not find any item apart from the 4 products shown on snapdeal. Any ideas?
Also haven't been able to use it on the car but certainly tried it on the lcd and a couple of glass shelves in the house which were real dusty and was surprised at the dust picking ability of the mini duster. Excellent product, thanks a lot guys for introducing me to the exciting and fruitful world of car care / detailing.

Freebies = A hanging scent, microfiber cloth.
Yes, jopasu is pretty good when cleaning of dust. Its pure VFM.

On the cleaning part, even mine is a year old and still picks up dust/mud particles from my car, leaving no marks. But the bristles are black in color. Hesitant to clean it.
