cleaning the soft touch

i noticed that the soft touch dash is a great collector of dust. i also noticed that the dash is not easily cleaned with a micofiber towel...the microfiber leaves lint! what have you my fellow 2012 owners used to clean it (rag, duster? )
ford has quit making triple clean appearantly...and i dont want to use anything too fragrant cause i still have the new car smell.

303 is a great product, and can be used in different areas of the car. I am currently using SONAX Dashboard Cleaner with a microfiber cloth. If you are using a new towel, you might get some lint. They are typically better after the first use wash.
