I find that the dust attaches with a static charge. I have a car duster that I tried since mine is in the garage most of the time it just gets dusty. Dusting it just moved the dust around due to the static charge and it accumulates into larger areas. This makes it look worse than if I didn't touch it at all. I haven't found a solution other than washing it.Those of us with dark colored Ravs-Magnetic Gray-that get dusty seconds after washing. What are you using in between washes or as a quick detailer? Any recommendations?
I have always seen these. Do you think it ever left scratches?On my black 4.3 Rav I bought one of these and would run it over the car every few days(daily during pollen season in TX). It actually works great.

It's about how concerned you are about swirls and scratches. If you use automatic car washes that have rotating brushes or mats that touch the car then go ahead and use your CCD. If you want your finish to stay scratch and swirl free then don't use either. It's just a matter of how badly you want to protect the finish.Why is that?
I have heard a lot about ONR. Does it leave any protection or a slickness to the paint?ONR, hands down one of the best and most versatile product.
Method 1: Dilute it to make a very good quick detailer. Spray some generously on a panel and wipe away with a folded microfiber. Turn the microfiber and dry. Definitely a good option to wipe away bird droppings and other spot cleaning.
Method 2: Fill a bucket with hot/warm water and add a capful or two of ONR. Add a few microfiber towels and let soak. Use one towel per panel starting from the top and going downwards. Do one side and dry off. Once you get the hang of it, shouldn't take more than 5 to 10 minutes for the whole car.
@RTexasF . Thoughts on liquid detailers?Just dusty? Rinse it off and blow it dry.
ONR is a wonderful product. Plus it's clearcoat safe, and it doesn't need to be rinsed off. They have a wash and wax variant as well which has a more slick finish. Definitely check it out. A bottle will last a long time.
It does leave something behind but it is not that much and is likely just the lubricant. If you ever use it and want to put on a sealant/wax you need to remove ONR first. I think any alcohol base cleaner would work fine.
