Polish
I know that stuff very well. I use it to clean my motorcycle. Honda used to have exclusive contract to sell that stuff, and it was sold under their name. It especially works good on getting insects off a windshield.

That said, I don’t know if I would put that anywhere near my S6. I’d be a little nervous. A little too harsh. The best stuff I’ve ever used is what Eddie posted in the original post above. The plexi glass cleaner is exactly what the S6 needs, and it’s not too strong. Almost a non-smell.

Swiffer duster brush works, horse hair (art or drafting) brush works.

+1 for the Swiffer duster. It’s like a magnet for dust! Gets around the knobs easy. But go slow around the Post Module paddles; it snags sometimes.

FYI, Costco sells them in bulk.

Thanks guys - these worked beautifully..

Dumb question I guess but, how many uses are you supposed to get out of each duster pad?

I suppose that really depends on just how nasty your console looks!

For anyone EU located, I used Auto Glym Fast Glass to clean the S6 and it worked great, no abrasives, and has the desk gleaming like new.
