   That's why I always use a vacuum cleaner with an upholstery brush to remove as much dust as possible THEN blow the remianing stuff out using the blower port on the vacuum. The brush really helps in getting the stuff out of cracks and crevices. I use a small (~15" x 5" dia) AC powered vacuum made by Hoover. It developes plenty of suction and vacuum and it's very compact.

   The blower is also very helpful in getting water out from under the ICs and other hidden places if I wash something.
