Anything available that...

repels dust?????

I have a gravel driveway, own a duplex with my parents, my brother lives with them, he likes to make dust with his POS festiva, and a lot of it.
I washed my car Saturday morning, and by Saturday afternoon it was covered with dust.

Is there anything that will repel dust, or just wishful thinking on my part????

You could add new meaning to POS. Like Pushed Over on it's Side festiva. your car will still get dusty, but your bro will have to put his car back on it's wheels.

Put up one of those vinyl car-ports. Few hundred bucks, you've basically got a garage.

Just buy some sort of dust mop. It is quick and easy. I think that the product that I am thinking of is called the California duster or something like that.

The California Car Duster is the last thing I would be using in this scenario. If he's doing it often, the duster is bound to get clogged with dust and dirt, and pretty soon he might as well just pick up dirt in his hand and rub it on the hood.

I would assume that he would clean it as needed, but if one chooses to not maintain their cleaning tools then that is their issue not mine

You can try putting Calcium Chloride on your driveway to prevent the dust from getting airborne to begin with.

Well if its not too heavy of dust you can use a california car duster, or you can spray wax the vehicle to remove light dust and finger prints. There really isnt anything that REPELS dust, but you could always use sealant (allowed to cure for 24 hours in a low dust environment) and then wax the car with a few coats, and that helps "prevent" dust from sticking, and allows for grime, dust, dirt, everything, to easily wash off the next time because its on the wax/sealant and not on the actual clearcoat. Other then that, you need to shoot the bastard- or ask him to please stop kicking up so much dust, see if he will hose down the area hes fuckin around in with water to reduce the amount of dust being thrown up. (obviously not soaked but lightly wet) Other then these solutions.. get a car cover or garage.

I will snap a pic of the dust tomorrow, have to go to work soon.

I dont think I have to worry about bro's car anymore, he just crashed it again, I am praying it goes to the junkyard now.....heh

I take pretty good care of what I use to clean it, I wash all the towels and what not after each use, and dont use fabric softener, let them air dry, I will look into this duster thing, I have to build or buy somethng like a car port anywase, these friggn trees piss sap onto everything, I thought pine tree's were bad, buy was I wrong.....heh

Finish Kare claims a lot of their products have anti-static properties. Won't repel dust, but might attract a little less. Their 425 QD works great on TV screens. http://www.fk1usa.com

Calcium chloride? Isn't that the blue stuff they put on road salt in winter to make it work better? It makes the damage of the salt a whole lot worse than the salt alone when it comes to rust etc. If that's what it is I wouldn't put it on my driveway for anything.
