if im jsut getting dust off of mine (since it hasnt left my room yet that seems to get all over it ) i just use a tack cloth. and also im paranoid about scratching the finish so i use a tack cloth again if im going to clean with windex or something like that. my cymbals im too afraid to touch them with anything

As far as cymbals i clean them with a metal/aluminium product i let it penetrate really nicely with a towel or an old t shirt and then five minutes later i clean it again with a clean towel...
