Default Re: Jopasu Car Duster - A mini review

The good thing about the Jopasu duster is the way it picks up dust, and the how the dust clings to the duster fibres.

The bad news is the dust doesn't want to let go either, and it takes 3-4 buckets of water and several spoonfulls of detergent to clean the duster. I have just washed mine, now to see if the duster can pick up dust well enough after a good wash. The quantity of dust that came out was copious, be warned of a very dirty bathroom floor.

So much detergent would strip the wax coating on the duster which is primarily responsible for picking the dust. Don't expect the duster to work as good or even anywhere near how it was earlier. Most of us do not wash the duster at all. Just shake off the dust after each use, that's it.

1. simply, shake it.

2. hold it, handle up, and hit it against the ground. This will dislodge more dirt

(It never damaged mine, but, of course, the risk is yours )

Use a liquid detergent, which should be milder than the powder to wash the duster. Never had problems after using either a liquid detergent or car shampoo to wash the dirt off.

I typically use one duster for 6 months, and wash every 2 months. Worked fine for me, no issues picking up dust off a Safari ( to give an idea of the area to be cleaned ).

I had heard that Jopasu was shipping a renewing agent along with the duster ?

Hi,

The amount of dust settling on the car's surface has gone up a lot these days as the number of cars plying through our lane has increased a lot. It has come to an extent that even if I wash the car in the morning, it would be covered in a layer of dust by the end of next day. So I think Jopasu duster would do the job for me.But the problem is, in the early morning, the temperatures go down a bit and condensation takes place on the car's surface(I have covered parking but still so much condensation takes place). The moisture makes the otherwise loose dust, get more stuck on the surface. If I use the duster on this surface, is there any chance of scratching or other damage of such sort?

Bought the jopasu small combo pack from amazon. It comes with two dusters as well as a pack of magic wipes. Sold directly by jopasucare and came with neat packaging.

On a side note, feeling confident based on so many bhpian's feedback about the product I asked the person coming to clean the car daily to not come from today onwards.

Yes, that is to be expected. Even if you didn't wash it, that wax won't remain forever. The thing needs to be washed. Shaking it vigorously barely dislodges the accumulated dust, I don't know if it has anything to do with the dust out here being particularly clingy.

The good thing is even post-wash, it is doing its job well, picking up most of the dust ( used it thrice since the wash), although there is a clear and notable drop in efficacy.

Can you give us an idea about the cost? Looking to buy one for my i10. I've been looking for one for some time but never gotten around to order one.

I have started using the duster for couple of weeks now. It does a great job of removing all the dirt in matter of minutes. The area I stay in has cemented roads and hence lot of dust floating around. I have to do-over twice of the car for it to remove the dust settled on the car but still it takes up < 5 mins. Having said that, word of caution for people planning to buy this.
1. Do not use it if there is water or fog on the car. It will mess up more.
2. This is not a substitute for water wash nor does it give as much cleanliness as a car wash. What this does it to remove 90% of the daily dust accumulation. Need to still wash the car atleast once a week.

Jopasu may really be good but it is a matter of time before they get out-priced from the market. They had a price below Rs.500 earlier and people were good to pay that. However, with all the successes and rave reviews I think they got a little too overconfident. Today I see these dusters even listed at 800 rupees at times! This is hilarious. There is no way in the world you can justify a car duster to cost that kind of money!!!

Market is shaping up for a worthy competitor. It is a matter of time before someone discovers a Chopsuey or another similar brand that works as well but costs far lesser.

Hey Zappo

+1 to that.
I am in fact waiting for a worthy competitor to be launched.
The ones available currently in the market just don't cut it when compared to the jopasu.
