feather duster John. If you don't have a feather duster you could use that feather boa you keep hidden in the closet.

Ouch! But very funny!

John, I use something similar to this, but with a shorter nap.

I use a small, soft bristle brush. Your choice to size and style.

Previous posts from others tells me that John isn't interested in anything that gives him a shorter nap.

I actually just cleaned mine...I have an onboard air compressor and I just used a blow gun..worked great! I actually used it to "dust" the whole bus and I've even dusted our house before (wife doesn't know but what she don't know won't hurt her!).

Dusters never seem to get the crevice around the instruments. One of our members who details show cars suggested Q-Tips. I tried them dry, and that really made it look new. Who'da thunk it.
