Thinking of buying a anti static brush on amazon to clean the dust off PCBs (Mobo/GPU). Anyone use one?

I did not even know these existed. I am now curious. Are they safe to use?

I assume so, they advertise as being anti static.

This is the first time I've ever heard of such a thing. Apparently the owners of vinyl records like using them and they're used in a lot of laboratories as well. Two scenarios that don't really affect normal people.

It sounds like they would probably WORK, though I can't imagine ever really caring enough to use one. Yes, electronics get a thin film of dust after a while even if you blow the big particles off of them periodically, but I've never known it to impair their functioning.

Easier to just use a can of compressed air. Does everything you'd want to do with a brush, as well as for crevices in heatsinks & fans.

I really wouldn't worry about the little bit of dust that sticks to the PCB of your components that compressed air wouldn't be able to blow off.
