the interior gets dusty very quickly...

I recently noticed the interior gets very dusty very quickly. Especially some areas like the cup holder cover tray...man that material attracts so much dust so easily (and it is very hard to clean)

I'm wondering if someone can recommend some dusting products or techniques? How do you clean that dust-sucking tray?

thanks!

Meguiar's Quik Interior Detailer is my favorite for cleaning up dusty interiors. Depends if your vehicle has been detailed in the past and has a silicon-based dressing applied to it, that could be your problem.

...Only if you drive with your windows open a lot (..as any interior would). My windows are very rarely down, and my interior isn't dusty.

yea it's quite windy...

I've never opened the sunroof all the way back, or left it open after leaving the car. :/

anyways, none of those is important. the important thing is...how do clean up the dusty dashboard & ashtray

+1 and I use a Giottos Rocket Air Blaster to blow the dust out of crevices(power window buttons, HUD,etc.). The rocket blaster is for my camera equipment but works great for keyboards also.

I keep a small swifter duster in my glove box and use it every so often to get rid of dust between full interior cleanings (I use Einzett Cockpit Premium to wipe down the dash and whatnot when I full interior cleanings).
