#1 rule......never just spray pollen off with the hose and dry. Always wash it with whatever soap you use for normal washes.

Invest in a car cover. My wife's corvette is black, same problem your're having, impossible to keep clean. The cover makes it better, I can go 3 or 4 days before I have to detail the car. Get a California Car duster also. I can go months here in Arizona without washing the car (no rain).

I liked that e-Bay cover so much I got one for my mustang.

No offense but no ****ing way....don't ever use a California duster to get pollen off your car. It will scratch the crap out of it.

before i clayed my car it was horrible, after Claying it and following up with Meguires caranuba it does pretty much fall off the car, but not all of it, about 10% or so will still be on it...That was just my experience though.

California Duster works very well for removing dust and pollen. I use it just about every day and have been for the last 10 years. I've never had a problem with it scratching the paint.

If you use quick detailing spray and a soft microfiber towel you can wipe the vast majority of it off. I also use a swiffer duster and it seems to do a decent job. My car is silver and I still wash it once a day. I'm just very picky about it staying clean. In Arkansas the amount of dust is ridiculous from dirt roads, etc. so it's a constant battle. I don't know if there is any good way to keep it off the car.

A lot of horrible info in this thread. Never wipe pollen off with a rag or C.D. and never use detail spray to take it off.

Good read.

Good article. I read in the notes where a blower was used to loosen the simple stuff between washes and a degreaser used for heavy soiled spots.
