What is the best way to get and keep the dash clean? the rough surface picks up every piece of lint on anything i run across it.

Sounds like you need to invest in some higher quality microfibers. I use Surf City Dashaway or Adam's Interior spray and they both work great on anything inside the car.

I use Meguiar's interior cleaner with great results, even on my winter beater that gets way more abuse. Cheap and over the counter product in most stores.

I have to wonder if someone used a cheap product on there and that’s causing the stickyness. I second Adams.

I just use plain old water to clean my dash but have found most microfibres snag too much.
I use the cloth from the old endless roll cloth hand dryer dispensers, its softer than most and doesn't lint up the dash.

I usually just use a damp cloth. If needed, I'll go over it with a mild soapy water, but that requires multiple passes.

I haven't cleaned it in about a year (since I still haven't finished the dang project), and it isn't really that bad.

Those old hand dryers....

You made me chuckle, thinking about those old endless roll cloth hand dryers! :)

I can't remember the last time that I saw one of those!

I never thought they were very sanitary, but heck, at least it isn't blowing around germ-infested water like the new high pressure air driers do....

Turtle Wax and ArmorAll both make really good trim cleaning wipes.

If you guys use a simple soap and water solution or all purpose cleaner, be sure to apply a dressing with uv protectant. Help keep the vinyl from fading and so on. Especially for the members who live down south. Window tint or shade is also a good investment for keeping it from aging.

Doesn't the janitor get pi$$ed when you cut a piece out of his "endless roll". I do remember being in restrooms where the towel was laying in a pile on the floor and wondering "how did that happen". Now I know

It was my Father!!!!
He had half a dozen or more rolls in his garage, said he got them from work.
Don't quite remember him as a janitor though....

For a quick wipe down, I just use my California Duster across the dash. Works pretty decent, but, of course, doesn't really get into the crevices real good.
