I generally just use a Swiffer duster to clean the loose dust from mine. Occasionally, I'll use a damp cloth on it, but not often. (I try to keep anything wet or moist away from the console as much as possible.)
I try to always use something that is meant for electronics. Pledge, if I'm not mistaken, makes a spray specifically for electronics, and I believe that's the product I have in my cabinets now. I don't clean the console very frequently though, which is why I can't completely remember the brand of the spray I have. I really only clean the console if it "looks" dirty; otherwise I just leave it alone.
