cleaning on instrument cluster 200

My daughter's '92 240 has a bad odo, and I'm waiting on the gears for it. Noticed a lot of white powder looking substance on the gauge faces and inside of the cluster assembly. Most of it brushed off the speedo face, the rest doesn't. Any ideas on what it is? I've tried windex and mineral spirits with no luck. I don't want to damage it, so going slow here. Next I guess is to try vinegar in case it's a calcium type buildup, which is what it reminds me of.
