Hey Dusty, let me know if you get an answer to that. I have the same problem. Wash wax and then boom full of dust or fine particles. I have a speacial cloth that I can just take and rub the truck down with but I have been told that it will cause fine scratches throughout the paint.

Keep me in the loop if you find something out.

I use Meguiar's Ultimate Quik Detailer. Works great with a microfiber towel and keeps that "Just Waxed" look.

It will also help you go a little longer between washes/waxes. I do it to mine every day it doesn't rain. Get home from work, wipe it down real fast. Takes literally 15-20 mins to do the whole truck. By then, dinner is on the table.

another option is a product by Turtle Wax called "Ice" it works great too

I believe that any decent "quick detailer" spray type product will do the trick for what you're looking for though.

I stay far, far away from any turtle wax product...for many reasons, but in this case its because the product is around 80% water. If I am going to do that I might as well holse it down and dry it off (read SWIRLS). MUQD is only 25% water, just enough to give it liquid form, the rest of it is lubricants and liquid wax, which will help keep your paint from swirling. Another great thing about it, is its a professional line product that us pro's use A LOT, but you can pick it up at wal-mart/autozone for the same price as Turtle Wax Ice. It may even be cheaper.

Turtle wax is great for some things, tire shine (not the foam, their foam will turn your wheels white), window cleaner, etc....but when it comes to stuff like this, they need to leave it to the professionals.

I also use Griot's Garage quick detailer, and while I am not a HUGE fan as of now, it does work. Just doesn't seem to last as long.

Hey guys,

I have the same problem with my black 1500 Express. I also use Meguiar's quick detailer in between washes to keep it clean. I use a car duster once a day when I get home from work to keep the dust and pollen off. It works pretty good. Here's a link to one similar to mine.

Moon, you dont ever just want to use a straight duster, ESPECIALLY on a black truck. Swirl city my friend. Its not just dust, its microscopic particles of grit. If you rub it across your paint without lubrication (soap or QDT), it will scratch/marr your clearcoat.

Thanks for the tip, Army. I'll leave the dusting to the interior from now on.
