In such mid-week situations, you can make the car look a little better by just rinsing it thoroughly with a hose pipe and partially dry it off with a carefull steady fan of water or open hose.

Its a bit of a compromise of dust v water spots, but it should look better and as you are only using low pressure plain water, it wont scratch, swirl or degrade your wax.

Doesn't take long either - 10 mins will do the job.

Optimum No Rinse. Spray on, then wash with a mitt and bucket of the solution, then dry.

Can wash the whole car in 10-12 minutes.

I came across this duster which might be an option.

I admit I haven't seen used it myself so I can't comment on its effectiveness but perhaps others can.
