Can you wipe down your vinyl interior with plain water, just to remove dust?

Soapy water. If you want to clean it. Or, rubbing alcohol.
To only wipe dust, use them dust collecting wipes they sell for mops.

You can also use regular car wax on plastic/vinyl and buff out a long lasting shine.

I've become a full devotee of microfiber cloths with warm water and a little elbow grease for all non-leather surfaces.

No shine, no residue, no smell.

People love to recommend vinegar...eventhough it smells horrible.

I just invented my own system with great success.. I used plain water and a cloth....while it was still wet, I went over it again with off brand car wipes, and it looked great.
