My favourite is toothbrushes... i save old ones, and new ones.

I just used a 2hp air compressor.Alot of people think thats bad because of the moisture but i point the nozzle at wood or something for a min to make sure that the water is gone,then blow out your PC.

Or drain the tank first. Nonetheless, it's astonishing how well that clean up worked.

No its not the moisture people are scared of that is very minor compared to the larger issue.

Compressor oil.

If ANY bit of oil gets into your compressor tank it CAN end up on your computer parts.

Oil-less compressor+ line filter FTW
I picked up my little 2 gallon beast for like...45 bucks a few weeks back
no oil to worry about, stored with the bleed valve wide open
