Hi all.

My wife showed me this link click here today.

I'm not sure if Dust Off is available here or not, but similar products are so please store them carefully away from any children.

I certainly don't want to frighten anyone. I'm sure that like anything else, as long as its used properly its perfectly safe.

Regards.

My 18 year old nephew died a year ago, exactly the same situation.

I also didn't realize the dangers involved with such a seemingly harmless can of compressed air.
Thank's BigRik for the link.

I did know about solvent abuse. Contact adhesives, lighter gas and so on, but nothing like this!

Your posting is well worth reading BigRik.

The safest way to remove dust (no contact with delicate hardware and above all, no propellant or fumes) is a hair dryer with a no-heat setting. Put on max power and use the nozzle attachment, it's pretty effective.
