Take a king size sheet and cover everything in your tent when you're not in it.

Then you can take the dust out once a day.

Definitely like that idea. Simple and effective.

Start with what you have around the house, and pilfered office supplies. Medium to large binder clips make serviceable spring clips. Wrap with tape for a little padding.

Consider using they type of flat magnet that comes on rolls for maximum surface area and sealing. You could even stich it into the edge of the mesh. ... strips.php
