Here's the current state. It's not too bad but I'm a bit finicky when it comes to dust and cleaning my computer/desk.

I dust it every two weeks, and fully clean the interior every 3 months. I mostly use my hand for the dust part, and compressed air isn't "Amazing" when dusting this off. At least I don't have the concentration cord aka plastic skinny thingy.

I thought maybe some vets will have cool tricks/advice. Thanks

I tried that it still had a lot of dust build up. Ended up doing it 3 times and it still wasn't completely clean =/

Maybe my faucet is weak?

I try not to use a toothbrush because I feel that it *may* leave scratch marks in the long run (yeah I am very sensitive about my case lol). I have the same mesh and all I do is put it on running water and lather it with dishwashing liquid. Looks like brand new afterwards

I shouldn't have said scrub it down but rather brush off the dust like you're brushing your teeth, gently. If a toothbrush is safe and gentle enough for your teeth and gums, it should be safe enough on plastic.

Also as mentioned above

Vacuum cleaner usually works very nicely to suck the dirt out of filter.

Put some dish soap in the sink with about 3" / 75mm warm water.
Lay the filter in dirty side down and let it soak for a few minutes.
Than with filter flat rapidly move / shake it up and down about an inch / 25mm vigorously. Might take a few minutes and a second soak but should dislodge the dirt.
Rinse it with clean water and let dry.
