Both of my cars has had a California duster used on them. If you have a good coat of wax, ceramic or ppf, you won' get swirls. You must use it correctly though.

I always go in a straight line as much as possible and never press down.

We are just talking about light dust, if it needs washed then the wash n wax spray and micro fiber towels.

Mine is ceramic coated and whenever I used the duster I was barely touching the paint (just enough to grab the dust) and ONLY ever did it when the car was lightly dusty... I really haven't noticed any scratches/swirls...

There is one thing the California duster has been great for - a quick way to wipe dust or pollen off the windows, particularly at the end of the day before I drive home. I always keep one in the trunk.

I have one and I use it often. Just like overdriv said, don't press down too hard and go in straight lines.

I have ceramic coating and use a Swiffer duster - zero pressure and dust is statically attracted to it. Cheap and disposable.

I have one that I've been using consistently for 20 years I bet and 5+ different cars, I love it. it has a learning curve to it though, daily and never any more dust that you can get daily and even then you have to be able to eye ball what is too much. And never ever apply pressure. Keep it in it's little holster.
