Sand dust over everything

I replaced my substrate with Flourite Black Sand (with a little plain aquarium black sand to bulk up the corners). I didn't do a great pre-rinse job, so expected some cloudiness in the water, that's fine. But all the plants, driftwood and the sand itself seem to be covered in dust. Will this eventually get cleaned off naturally? Do I need to somehow brush everything off?

I love the look of the black sand tanks I've seen, but so far mine isn't looking like those. I hope this wasn't a giant mistake!
