cleaning the gauge cluster cover

Does anyone have a method for cleaning the plastic cover over the gauges? Every car/truck Ive owned would get scratched to hell after cleaning the dust off... Its annoying!

wet rag......let the rag soak in the dust. Then spray it with vynal, plastic....any interior cleaner will do, and wipe it down. I use eagle one interior spray. And I spray it on a terrycloth and wipe down.

I use a soft bristle paintbrush while holding the shopvac nozzle close.

It's also good for the vent outlets and door panel / speaker grills, dash top, etc.
