    Default Advice for car care for my Passo 08

    The car is pearl white. And is as new as 0 meters, havent even took off the car's cover off since last 2 years. Now when I took the cloth off, alot of dry dust is lying on the car's body.

    Now, I dont want to wash it off with water, Just want to clean it with dry clothes.

    My idea is to first take off the dust by normal electrical blower and then clean it with dry cloth/towel. Car's shine is as new as new car apart from dust since it was polished 2 years back and then covered with car's cover.

    Reason for not preffering to wash it off with water is because in my area the water isn't pure (khara type) and this could causing rust in the longterm.

    Advices are welcome by car care experts.

    Dry dusting has the potential to scratch.
    Wash it properly.

    Actually nothing happens in short term, this khara water does alot of damages in longterm. Eats corners of trunks, fenders's lids in the bonuts and alot.

    Would air blower bring scratches?

    you don't have to leave the water on the car for long term so that it could harm it! just wash it and use some quality car shampoo, dry with a microfiber and then apply some quality wax on it

    Why the car is parked from 2 yrs anyways? Use it if uv bought it or better sell it?

    Washing is the only solution we are looking here.. get a hose pipe, without applying much pressure wash the car.. when most of the dust is gone, use a shampoo to clean it.

    Dry it quickly... u can use ur electric blower after washing to get rid of water gathered at unreachable places... (u seem too cautious about rust)

    Apply some good quality wax.. better use a sealant and then use the car if uv bought it!

    Any sort of blower usage, dry dusting, spray wax detailer would result in swirl marks... a lot of em! Ruining ur car's paint finish...

    So water is the only sol.

    Bro the water would be dried off, how can it cause rust, don't u get your car serviced? they also use khara pani, it will dry off and won't cause any rust. you r not dipping the whole car in water and keeping it in it for a long term
