If it left streaks there might be two reasons. One is that they used to make dusters with oil treated fibres, (do they still?) and static treated as well. Some dusters have so much oil when you first unwrap them. The other reason, a slightly dirty car? I've used dusters every 2 days for 10 years and have had no problems with scratching or streaking. I always try to make sure there is enough wax on the car to prevent any scratching, etc. About every month I vacuum out the duster because it holds a lot of dust even though you shake it out.

Pollen will scratch your car over time, pollen is very sticky and abrasive, if you look at it under magnification it looks like tiny World War II land mines, always wash pollen off with water to be safe
