Black car maintenance?..

How do you guys keep your black stangs clean? i wash my car and then by the next day it's all dusty lol. I read online that you can use a feather duster on dusty cars... but it didn't say anything about if it's good on the black cars. dang paint shows the slightest imperfections lol. I came to the realization pretty fast that dirt comes with the territory with the black cars , i just wan't to keep it looking fresh.

help/suggestions?

thanks,

A black car is very difficult to keep clean. I keep a California car duster in my car and dust it off daily when she's clean.

it doesn't scratch the paint with the dirt dragging across it?

Those can and will cause some light swirl marks. If car is dusty, pickup some "dry" car wash. Easy to use, takes only a few minutes and no swirls.

I like Griot's Garage products as well. After my regular washes I've been applying Meguiar's Quik Detail and Quik Wax to add a little protection for the upcoming week. This weekend I'm doing a full detail and wax using Detailer's paint sealant and P21S carnauba wax.

Lots of washing, waxing, cleaning etc... I loved my white Cobra, that thing stayed looking boss even after a week of driving.
