I've read on numerous forums about people using microfiber to clean their PS4 and it leaving hairline scratches.  I don't want use my micro fiber in case something like that does happen. Any suggestions on how to dust the PS4?

The only part you need to worry about is the glossy cover over the hdd. I'd take an easy on it. I actually only use a microfiber cloth on that part. The rest you can use any normal cloth or even a vacuum attachment. The gloss part is what's going to show scratches. I've lived and learned, well I'm still living and well doing stuff the same way except with my PS4. My slim 360,sound bar, tv all have scratches from using the vacuum attachment but oh well. It works the best. Actually I lied again, the cloth I'm using is this joe campanelli's safari dusting towels with magnefiger. Whatever the **bleep** that means. That's what it says on the label. I'm not sure where the hell I got it but it works great on everything.

Get a hose and pour some water on it

I just clean the dust off with a rag, no way am I going to try to get more in depth for fear of getting something stick inside or worse.

Don't forget the line around the sides, most people don't seem to realize thats where the air is going in.

Take it outside and use a hose use water and soap or something like that.  Then put on the sun.  After that just start playing again.

 

 

No but seriously use a cloth very carefully clean it.  Use an old toothbrush to clean the vents which is very very important so the PS4 can breath and dont suffocate lol.
