Ditto from Dan and I. Just parked Sylvia our '56 As for the season, she is next to a vintage Shasta, hernew BFF for the winter. Will miss the AS life, it has been an awesome summer from Maine to Nova Scotia to BM.

Another great Burn for the record books.
Hard to believe 2012 is now history.
It was big fun playing with you all on the playa.
I'll post some tasteful photos when I get a moment.

Looking forward to next year...
Stay dusty my friends.

Not much of Airstreams in here, but it is safe for work. Our Tin Pickle is visible in a couple of pics. I didn't have my camera with me when we visited the Airstreameri - it gets in the way of all the hugs.

So any advice or special tricks for clearing the dust out of my Airstream?

Best regards,

Jake

Shop vac and dilute vinegar water, but not at the same time.

Dry cleaning first! Vacuum, dry swifter, sweep. Vacuum. When you can no longer see dust, mop with distilled vinegar and water. The acidic vinegar neutralizes the alkali playa dust and makes it quit turning into sticky mud.

Cleaning Playa Dust

I don't like the smell of vinegar so I followed up on Barbie's (Webspinner) advice and looked for Calgon. But had no luck at the local stores. So I turned to a similar product called Lemi-Shine which is citric acid having a pH of 2. It is used in dishwashers to remove the lime (calcium) scaling due to hard water. It works really great on the interior in a diluted solution, but I'm reluctant to use it on bare aluminum. Dawn dish soap is the cleaner of choice for Al.

Missing you all, already. The DWR is finally "clean" but the tow vehicle still smells like the playa. I have a disc of pix, and another of tunes sampled from BMIR and the art cars--PM me here on the Airforums with your snail mail address and I'll gladly send them your way. See you in 2014!
