Best way to clean dust off of a case?

#1SkaterUBPosted 12/2/2013 3:52:04 PM
I kinda just used a sock and dust spray to wipe it off but wasn't sure if it was right. Any special way of doing it without getting more dust inside?

compressed air in a can and something without as much lint as a sock.

I use compressed air for inside and a Swiffer duster for outside. It works very well for me.

Compressed air is the best. It makes everything smell nice and clean like you first unpacked the box.

Wouldn't it blow the dust into the case though? I want to clean the outside of the case.

Clean the outside and then open it and clean the inside.

Datavac is the best. It's like compressed air but a lot stronger and without a risk of spraying liquid on your computer.
