    I hate dust.

    I'm so sick of the dust in my car. There is an air purifier for the WRX isn't there? Anybody know how hard it is to install and how much it costs? Is it worth it?

    How soon after you clean the dash do you get noticable dust? It's about 4 to 7 days for me without the filter.

    The filter doesn't seem to do that much to avoid dust for me. It may cut it down a little... but I have no before and after to compare to.

    I keep a microfiber towel in the glove box, break it out every time I warm up the engine it seems.

    I hear some peeps use those mini ionizer things from sharper image... I've yet to go there but may ask santa for it.

    ...hint...

    Ok - i'll be "hints from heloise" and take one for the team...

    After giving your dash a good cleaning, take a fabric softener sheet and wipe all surfaces with it. This should reduce the static that attracts the dust.

    Use non-scented.

    Hmm I might try that. Will put it on half the dash and see if I can tell the difference. By the way I have the air filter, it probably helps a little but not as much as I would like. It does help during allergy season though should probably replace mine, been over a year.
