Playa dust is alkaline. You need an acid solution to counteract and cut it, water alone doesn't do it. I use Orange cleaner and/or vinegar to clean all my stuff off.
Armour-All worked wonders on my car interior. The dust just...went away. Also, during the week a few times I attacked my car interior with Armour-All wipes (mainly because I slept in there), with one more serious wipe-down after repacking, right before leaving. Like de-MOOPing your site, it helps to do some pennywise maintenance as you go.
Another thing I did: I folded up a cheap woven blanket and laid it on my dash, covering the vents. You could still breathe in there but it caught the incoming dust. Wash the blanket in orange cleaner and good as ever.
