Keeping the bed shiny / clean?

I don't have the luxury of a garage.

Being Phoenix, AZ. is the worst dustbowl ever, my bed is always filthy. I'm afraid someone (g/f) will sit back there and track dirt onto my seats.

I have been experimenting with polywipe in the bed, and on the bed mat.

Does anyone have anything in particular you like to use, or anything you do to keep that bed shiny, and grease free? ( no ArmorAll for me)

You're probably better off getting a tonneau cover to keep the bed clean.

Soft tonneau covers are nice that you can fold/roll them up and/or remove them when you need to use the bed. I have a soft folding version. Personally, it's easier to clean the top of a dusty tonneau cover than it would be to clean the entire bed surface.

I also have seat covers to prevent dirt on my seats. I have a 'filthy' kinda job and need the seat covers.

X2 Tonneau covers are a good alternative in keeping your bed clean. If you want to keep you bed looking good, try Aerospace 303. It's non greasy and works great!!

A cover will work great to help keep it clean unless you drive dirt/dusty roads daily....I drive about 80 miles or more per day on dirt roads and I still get quite a bit of dust but it rinses right out!

My bed is starting to fade. I just tossed on a cover for the winter but with my supermoto bike in the spring/ summer/ fall... the cover will be off most of the time. Will this Aerospace 303 bring back the black?

since first posting this, I've come be part of the Aero303 following.

I have used it in my bed, after a great scrub with some dish detergent.
