I need to do some spring cleaning on my speakers. I pulled off the front grills and noticed some major dust and very off colored, faded speakers. How do I restore them to "look" like new again?

Are they paper or a poly/plastic material? For rubber surrounds a basic car dash wipes would work. Use a can of air to blow out the dust from the spider and venting. For paper cone speakers use this stuff:

They are paper. Thanks. This seems to be just what I was looking for. Have you personally used this? just asking, it doesnt really matter because I will be ordering a bottle anyway.

A vacuum with brush attachment is good for getting the dust off, without marking or damaging the cones or surrounds.
