Discovered spray detail

I'm one of those people who compulsively cleans their car... It gets a full wash at least once a week. And I have a job that gets me wound up, so I like to go out on whatever 20 minutes qualifies as a lunch break during the day and relax by doing some little car chore each day if I can- like one day I'll clean all the interior plastic/vinyl/dash stuff; one day I'll do the leather, shine the tires, one day I'll buff the exterior and try to really hit those hard to reach spots...etc
In the course of this routine I wandered into the auto parts store, looking for something to touch up the exterior, just to get off general road dirt, and shine up dull spots.
I impulse bought Meguirs spray detail, and after using it for a couple days I'm pretty amazed. I can do a quick buff with this stuff and the car shines like I just waxed it- with that great deep shiny paint look. It seems like it just zips everything dirty right off and looks great.
Anybody else use this stuff? It seems almost too good to be true- is it bad to use it a lot?
My car is a daily driver, it's garaged during the day, and put under a car cover at night, so it's a little extra effort to keep it shiny spic'n'span, but very satisfying.

Re: Discovered spray detail

Just make sure the dust is not to thick or it will scratch the paint. I use it on occasion but prefer to just wash the car. You should be ok if the car is covered when garaged.

I've done a lot of research on the web and by word of mouth and meguiar's always came up so I bought pretty much most if their products. It has worked great for my car Just be careful when soil/dirt is heavy. One product I highly recommend to keep on hand is the scratch x 2.0, I was amazed how it actually removes scratches without any hassle. Look on you tube, they have videos on pretty much all their products and how to properly use them.

Thanks - and yeah, I don't think dust would ever have a chance to accumulate anywhere on my car with the nonstop cleaning

Only problem with the California duster is that you have to make sure what you are wiping off is not to thick or heavy. It will pick up heavy dust and scratch the paint.

Ok I took your advice and picked up a California duster at auto zone today- I'd never heard of such a thing. All I can say is 'damn!!' glad I listened... That thing is crazy- i can't figure out exactly how it works but it does.
