    Okay, so I love the piano trim in my car but my OCD's are driving me to distraction with the build up of dust that happens within minutes of cleaning it.

    So is there a product or cloth I can use that is anti-static and will limit the build up?

    Thanks!

    Mr Sheen? It has anti-static properties, trouble is cleaning it too often will scratch it.

    I use a Meguiars paintbrush type thing to remove dust from the interior.

    Just put some wax on it. This will give it a even higher gloss and then you can use a microfiber cloth to gently wipe off any dust.

    Try using the brush attachment on the wifey's vacuum. It lets you get into the nooks and crannies to reduce the build up of dust in the car. I give my dash, console, doors and trim a good hoovering(as well as the seats and carpets) before cleaning and polishing. Helps keep the dust down.
