    I am confused, how do you do this. Paste polish or liquid, spray?

    I used paste, but you could use any type, the reason is you want to coat your vent with something that dust will not stick to. I tried furniture polish but it did not work as well.

      How did you apply the paste, and what did you use to take the excess off? Sounds pretty tedious but if I could keep dust from collecting on vents It would be great as I live in Florida and it is dusty!!

    I used an old damp t-shirt rag to apply a light coat of wax. Used a microfiber towel to wipe it off.
