Default How to wash the plane without water

Long story short due to a growing family the wife said we need a new house so we got another house and it doesn?t have a 50'X22' garage perfect for building a RV8 like the last one, so I rented a hanger to finish the project. The problem is the hanger is nowhere near air tight and is in the middle of the Nevada desert and when the wind blows everything gets covered in dust. How do I wash the plane without water? The avionics are in and in the middle of being wired, the canopy is cut and Sika flex, but the wind screen is not on and the motor is hung. Can I use Windex and paper towels? I have tried the air compressor which gets most of it off and then following up with a feather duster but this doesn?t get all of it.

The plan is to get the dust off of it and keep it covered with old bed sheets when not working on it. I don?t want to use something to clean it that will leave a residue when it?s time to paint it.
