    I live in Las Vegas and there's been lots of dust and pollen floating around lately. It's bad enough that it's a giant pile of dust here anyway, lol.

    Hopefully there's a better solution but what I've been doing is just taking a rag out and wiping the car down every day or two to clean all the dust/pollen off. If the windows need cleaned then I do that while I'm out there. Keeps the car clean and never takes more than 15 minutes.

    I'd love to know the answer to this too..

    I keep mine in covered parking at night and wipe it down with a "California Duster"... I'm iffy as to whether it will scratch the paint or not but it hasn't yet so I'm happy with it.

    Sorry, I should've been more specific.

    I use microfiber cloths and glass cleaner [both] from ArmorAll. The glass cleaner from ArmorAll is ammonia free, which is safer for non-glass surfaces. In case you don't know, ammonia will take wax and polish off the paint and is hard on the paint. I would recommend using a quick detailer spray that is designed for this specific application.

    Once I get a chance I'll be picking up some of the quick detailer spray. I'm not too concerned at the moment since the car needs a new paint job anyway, lol.
