DreamDetail, what technique do you recommend for cleaning the dust that accumulates in the interior? My FiestaST has only 600 miles on it, and I'm seeing the same thing I've see in my other vehicles: dust, especially particles smaller than, but resembling, grains of sand or salt. In particular, they get into the little crevices in the center console.

In my other vehicles, I used to vacuum(or wipe and let them fall deeper into the crevices) and just live with it. But this won't be good enough for my FiST...

Why not pick up a pack of cheap art paint brushes to brush the dust into a more manageable area?

Never thought of that!:headbang: I have even cheaper ones on hand, the plain metal bodied ones I use to mix epoxy when working on my RC planes. This dust bugs the crap out of me when sitting at a stop light!

I suppose you could even dampen the tip of the brush with a tiny dot of water (or even some proper automotive polish) to help collect the stubborn dust ...

I'm not sure how I missed this when it was first posted. If your looking for brushes to get into vents and gaps, these work great:

As is recommended above, I keep a microfiber towel in the car for wiping off dust in between washes. I swap it with a clean microfiber when I wash the car or if it gets too dirty beforehand. I also coat my interior plastics with Snowcake which leaves a dry film of UV protection and makes for easier cleaning.
