I bought some huge dusting thing at target that my kids make fun of me for using and in 3 seconds I dust the dash and instrument panel and all that stuff. Itís like a California duster but gray and not cotton and not waxed.

Meguier's Quik Interior seems to inhibit dust collection. Anti-static

Dusting is about it.
Tired ion generator.
Tried 12v filters.

If on could just get in the car without opening doors or windows.

......and wear no clothes.

Swiffer dusting wand. Keep one in the door pocket and it is always at the ready.

Just ran out and got some since my cockpit pro cleaner is almost out.

It doesnít smell as good, but it leaves a nice no shine finish. It also leaves zero streaks on the shiny plastic. And itís cheap and available everywhere.

Thanks for the recommendation

Kills time at a long light. If you keep on top of it youíll never need more than a damp cloth for the interior. Protect with 303.

Bought the smallest one they make. Fits in the under chair drawer. And works great. Thanks dude!
