What causes them?

Another q, what is the best method of cleaning my car since it is black and it is really dusty where I live and every 2 or 3 days I hose it down and wipe it all off and 2 days later it is dusty again

When the people at the dealership wax your car, they use and orbital buffer, which spins a cloth in a circular motion to buff off wax. That usually makes the swirl marks. In addition, if you hand wax your car, they tell you to go in a circular motion with the wax. That also adds to it. Buy turtle wax scratch and swirl remover. That helps a lot. The swirls will always be there, but this helps lessen them.

Dont hose your car down and wipe it off. That can scratch it with all the dirt and dust on it. There really isn't anything you can do. I have a black car too. I dont have a problem with dust, but I do with pollen. In the summer, I ll wash it and then 2 hours later, it will have pollen on it. Just some things there is nothing you can do about. Just dont hose it and dry it off like that, you will scratch your car that way. Use soap and water

Buy a California Car Duster. Those things are SWEEEET! I have one, and they work great...especially at car shows when you want to keep dust off your ride through out the day. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> You should be able to get one from any auto parts store for like $15-$25. <img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

True LoSho, I heard of the california duster. I saw it in a magazine and was going to buy it. I have the Califronia water blade. The best drying tool in the world! But that should work for you cougart. Damn, never even thought of that

I have seen it in Sears Automotive catalogue and saw it in some stores, such as Pep Boys. Along with this, I recommend the California water blade. Doesnt scratch or leave water spots.

Yes, but its very soft and doesn't scratch the paint. Leaves a nice spotless shine. I highly recommend it.
