It's marginally possible, but highly unlikely. Only if the cloth, for some reason, causes static spark discharge. However, NEVER save the rags in your garage or any closed space. Gas and oil soaked rags stored in garages have caused who knows how many house fires. Lots.

If a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, then that makes me a burning truck filled with TNT hurtling through a rocket fuel depot.

It would depend on what that dust is.  If for example your dust includes KClO5 then you have an explosive oxidizer-fuel combination.  Although it is subgolic, it can and will explode.

if your rag contains remnants of such as H2O2, then you have a hypergolic mix and it will explode into flame spontaneously.
