For getting some dust off the Galaxie between washes I use Mequiars Mist and Wipe (or whatever it's called) - I've yet to try the newer version they have out.

But here are some products for the [url=http://www.properautocare.com/5-minute-detail.html:3ui885rf]5 minute wash[/url:3ui885rf]

I rarely hose wash my collector cars either unless they are driven in the rain. For dust I always use a California Duster first, then a high quality detail spray like Wax Shop or Meguires with a soft cloth for the bug guts and road grime.

Insist on the wooden handle California Duster, the discount store model with the plastic handle will eventually break after being shaken out.

Oh yeah... forgot I've gor the cali duster as well. But I have the plastic handle and it hasn't broke yet. Been 10 years or so. I even shook it one time it flew in the air... <!-- s:oops: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_redface.gif" alt=":oops:" title="Embarassed" /><!-- s:oops: -->

U.S. Postal service sent out a message to all letter carriers to put a sheet of fabric softener in their uniform pockets to keep yellow-jackets away.

Use them all the time when playing baseball and soccer. I use it when I am working outside. It really works. The insects just veer around you.

1. It will chase ants away when you lay a sheet near them. It also repels mice.

2. Spread sheets around foundation areas, or in trailers, or cars that are sitting and it keeps mice from entering your vehicle.

3. It takes the odor out of old books and photo albums that don't get opened too often.

4. It repels mosquitoes. Tie a sheet of fabric softener through a belt loop when outdoors during mosquito season.

5. Eliminate static electricity from your television ( gps or computer) screen.

6. Since fabric softener is designed to help eliminate static cling, wipe your television screen with a used sheet of fabric softener to keep dust from resettling..

7. Dissolve soap scum from shower doors. Clean with a sheet of fabric softener.

8. To freshen the air in your home - Place an individual sheet of fabric softener in a drawer or hang in the closet.

9. Put fabric softener sheet in vacuum cleaner.

10. Prevent thread from tangling. Run a threaded needle through a sheet of fabric softener before beginning to sew.

11. Prevent musty suitcases. Place an individual sheet of fabric softener inside empty luggage before storing.

12. To freshen the air in your car - Place a sheet of fabric softener under the front seat.

13. Clean baked-on foods from a cooking pan. Put a sheet in a pan, fill with water, let sit overnight, and sponge clean. The anti-static agent apparently weakens the bond between the food and the pan..

14. Eliminate odors in wastebaskets. Place a sheet of fabric softener at the bottom of the wastebasket.

15. Collect cat hair. Rubbing the area with a sheet of fabric softener will magnetically attract all the loose hairs.

16. Eliminate static electricity from Venetian blinds.. Wipe the blinds with a sheet of fabric softenerto prevent dust from resettling.

17. Wipe up sawdust from drilling or sand papering. A used sheet of fabric softener will collect sawdust like a tack cloth.

18. Eliminate odors in dirty laundry. Place an individual sheet of fabric softener at the bottom of a laundry bag or hamper.

19. Deodorize shoes or sneakers. Place a sheet of fabric softener in your shoes or sneakers overnight.

20. Golfers put a fabric softener sheet in their back pocket to keep the bees away.

21. Put a fabric softener sheet in your sleeping bag and tent before folding and storing them. It will keep them smelling fresh.

22. Wet a fabric softener sheet, hose down your car, and wipe love bugs off easily with the wet fabric softener towel.
