Never wipe the surface dry with dust. There is not enough lubrication for the dust to be wiped off without causing damage to your paint. Pollen and dust are generally hard to avoid, especially when waxing- as its a dust magnet. If you want to continue using your wax quick detail it with CG Speed Wipe Chemical Guys Speed Wipe (Anti-Static) Quick Detailer - 16 oz | Detailed Image

It has anti-static properties that wont attract dust so much. But best of all is if you were to use a sealant as they generally "repel" dust/ pollen. Accompanied with Speed Wipe, you will see a big improvement.

If the pollen is dry, just take it out for a drive, and it will blow off.

Once the paint surface gets damp, then you'll need to rinse/wash it off.

Well I did it and did not see any scratches so idk man..
I'ts not going to be scratches. More-so light swirling. And knowing Honda paint, its ridiculously easy to cause. Sometimes pollen "adheres" to the surface and you would most likely have to rewash, or use ONR- Optimum no Rinse as a Quick Detailer. If its not stuck, a drive will blow it off.
