if you have one of those 'wet' vaccuum cleaners, then it'll help alot.

plain vaccuuming wun remove all the dust. Even if you do remove all the dust, it'll come back again in a few days.

best is to 'upgrade' to leather. No dusty problems.

I've seen one upholstery shop along Thomson road.. just immediately after the SHELL petrol kiosk.. towards Novena church.

It's a small shop that can do upholstery of all kinds.. Seen a few cars there doing leather seat installations too.

Else I reckon the most cost effective is to go up north.. not sure which shop exactly, but maybe some of the members here can suggest and give u directions.
