    I got a new case for my iPhone and the outer part is silicone. Problem is, it attracts alot of tiny specs of dust and stuff whenever I put it down on a table or desk or something. I hate having to wipe it off after every time I put it down and even then, it's hard to wipe off all of it.
    Is there any way I can make the silicone part of the case dust-resistant so it doesn't attract so much of it?

    When iSkinz came out they were tacky (sticky) and the recommendation was to rub baby powder on them; it worked like a charm. Had to do it every so often but it worked very well. I would do that. I guess I should say that you should take the case off your phone first. ;)

    Baby powder? Wouldn't that just make it more dirty and dusty?

    It will make it more baby powder-y. Dirt and dust won't stick to baby powder the way it does to silicone. There's no easy fix. If you're unhappy with the properties of silicone then switch to a different material.
