You should use it on your calves, too.

A damp sponge. Put several drops of laundry detergent in a quarter pail of warm water and wring out the sponge first. Dry with a clean bath towel.

If you're having condensation issues when cleaning your PC using compressed air, you're doing it wrong. As for machine lube, oh dear the lube! Heavens no I can't have even the tiniest bit of some random oily/fatty substance near my electronics!

Really, I understand that the air from compressors isn't squeeky clean, but to say that these impurities affect its utility in cleaning our computers is way exaggerated. If you feel otherwise, then I suggest you point me to the nearest example of consumer electronics that got destroyed by using compressed air to clean it. Spinning the fan like a dolt doesn't count!

Not only that, but he swaths his entire family in ballistic nylon, then buries them in the back yard, in case the screwdriver (micro-type, yanno) explodes.

Then he digs them up 3 weeks later, and arranges them around the dinner table, and wears their scalps as loincloths.

I just don't recommend it from my experiences with shop compressors of various configurations and vintages.

And I was being sincere when I said that it was good to know that you have not noticed any ill-effects of using a general-purpose compressed air source to clean your electronics.

I don't know of any examples in which electronics were ruined by using a shop compressor to dust them off. Showing you less than a dozen confirmed reports likely wouldn't get you off my back anyway. No one is stopping you from using whatever you like to blow the dust off of your electronics, just as no one is stopping me from bringing up the fact that shop compressors spew some funky stuff.

I see what you did there: by asking if I insist on wearing protective equipment when using a hand screwdriver, you are inferring that I am overly-cautious. Very clever.
