    Hi,

    I have a lot of dust on my instrument panel.
    The dust has been there for some time and I'm nervous about how to remove it.
    If I rub something on it too hard I'm afraid i'll scratch the plastic and seeing that scratch every day will drive me mad.

    I'm sure i'm being over cautious but wondering if anybody had some suggestions.

    What about a hoover with a brush attachment? Or a microfibre cloth with a gentle wipe

    What about soaking the sh!t out of it with Autoglym interior shampoo then using a soft microfibre? The wetter the better is my motto :thumbup:

    I may get shot for this but I use a baby wipe and glide it across the panel to get the dust off, wait till it drys then buff with a cloth that you clean glasses with, works a treat for me!

    Hi,

    Microfibre cloth is your best bet, perhaps slightly damp to avoid scratching.

    Thanks
