Top Off=Pollen Attack

Okay guys so i live in Myrtle Beach and it has been beautiful for the past 2 weeks i had my top off 4 days straight before i could no longer take the pollen building up on the inside of my yeep. My interior is rhinolined so i can rinse the floor right off but the dash, wheel, soundbar, and every little crack/crevice has pollen in it. Needless to say my allergies are going bizzark!!! Anyone know of any cleaning products for the inside that will help the pollen not to stick?? I had to put the top back on just because of how bad it was getting...and it's gonna be above 80 degrees today!!!! Anyone else on here getting blasted by pollen right now? (Apologies in advance for anyone that's still got snow or cold weather around lol)
P.S. i need to at least go doorless today eff this yellow stuff!

There are some cleaners for reducing dust build up-I know Black Magic makes one called antistatic dust guard-not sure how much help it will be-as pollen is a little different in that it is "wet" and s'posed to stick more than just dust or dirt. Might try compressed air for blowing out the inside-or maybe wipe it down with a rag each evening-sounds like a PIA but best ideas I got.

x2 on blowing it out.... Use a leaf blower. You can try an anti static type spray, but I don't think it'll really make a difference. Being topless, like everything else in life has it's advantages and disadvantages.... :shrug:

Yeah that was a big problem I had last spring and summer. My black interior was yellow. It drove me crazy. We live on the east coast not far from the ocean. So it's very humid. On top of the pollen it is very humid. So the condensation turns the pollen almost into a paste that is a PIA to get off. Thanks for the idea about the swiffer! I will have to give that try this year.

wipe down as much as you can then vacuum or blow the rest out. i have the same issue with allergies but love the top down windows open. I would rather wear a winter jacket and be a little cold with the top off than drive around all closed up but that means the inside is dirty frequently. The only issue i have with blowing is that it just pushes it someplace else in the vehicle.
