I roast with a heat gun in a breadmaker. The breadmaker just stirs the beans while all the heat comes from the heat gun. It is very fun. Clean up kinda sucks, but that's life.

I'd say 5/10 of my roasts are amazing. Better than buying from local professional roasters. I recently got a delicious malted chocolate taste from a Burundi. Seriously yummy. I've gotten blueberry and raspberry from Ethiopians. Sweet and delicious coffee.

4/10 are decent. I'm drinking one right as I type, an Ethiopian, that is... interesting... it has a lime flavor. It's definitely dialed in, not sour or bitter. Not particularly sweet. It's good, but not great. It's about as interesting as what I could buy from a local roaster... a little less interesting/delicious though.

1/10 are disasters. Over or under-done, "off-flavored," just something went completely wrong. Sometimes they're still salvagable... I have a VERY dark-roasted bean that I put a couple in as a blend with other Central/South American non-fruity coffees for dessert drinks. I will probably just cold brew it in a couple weeks. Brewed on its own it is just way too dark for me. It's probably a French roast. I've also roasted one so lightly that it turned pale and never really cracked. Tasted like lipton tea. Had to just toss it.

Overall, I highly recommend heat gun method if you're into the idea at all. It's surprisingly easy and fun once you have your set-up.

PS- you need to make sure you have a cooling solution too. I use a datavac that I already had (https://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-ED500P-500-Watt-Electric/dp/B001U899HQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1522274084&sr=8-2&keywords=datavac&dpID=418XjHwHhgL&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch)

And I just put the beans in a colander, put a plate on top, and blow the heat off them.

Good luck!

I like having a mini vacuum that is cordless, and has different attachments. It’s small so fits in room nicely and it’s easy to pull out randomly for little jobs. Filter is washable 🌎 A bit pricey but it’s totally worth it. There is also an attachment with a “brush” that is really nice for cleaning up hair off of furniture and rugs VS using a lint roller.See here: https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-HHVI315JO42-Dustbuster-Cordless/dp/B01DAI5BZ2/ref=zg_bs_510114_15?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=GDW8AH0AR8NR8504YFRH

I buy hay and litter material in bulk, and keep the big containers in another room. I have smaller tubs in the bunny room for daily use: hay, litter material, pellets, and a trash container. They all have swing-top lids so they are always closed. Makes cleaning litter boxes super easy and faster.

​

My bun has 2 high-top litter boxes that I clean daily, which I find helps with smells VS cleaning them every few days. Also, certain types of litter hold smells more than others. [See video below]

​

White vinegar is amazing. Used for cleaning up accidents, deodorizing the room, and add it to the washer when washing bunny laundry to remove smell. You can also use baking soda in a dish for deodorizing room, but PLEASE make sure the bunny has no chance of getting to it.

With our tiels - very little. Unlike a cat or dog, they don't wander around a whole lot. They'll play with toys and explore the holes in between couch cushions, but for the most part, they'll stick to where the fun and food are. My female tiel enjoys staying in and around her cage, so the only clean up is the normal every few days vacuuming. I recommend a dust buster or "quick pick up" style vacuum to keep near the cages to catch food debris.

The male tiel likes to hang out on the window perch, and on the stair banister rail. They typically plop once per hour, so there are only a couple little turds to clean up. They're water soluble and clean up easily, so it's not a problem at all, and could be avoided if you just place a paper towel/newspaper under the window perch.

Tiels really are the easiest birds to care for!

u/andgiveayeLL · 2 pointsr/dogs

I'm allergic to both dogs and cats and I have both. This list is more of the "nuclear options" just because of how severe my pet and dust allergies are, but even doing these things on a less extreme scale would probably help:

  1. HEPA filters for the air vents. Change them once per month

  2. I take Zyrtec daily (Costco has by far the best deal. You can buy it with a 5% upcharge if you aren't a member)

  3. In the spring when plants get added to the mix, I add another antihistamine (take Zyrtec in the morning and the second one at night). Usually it's allegra or claritin

  4. Brushing. Happens as near to daily as I can manage on my schedule

  5. Vacuuming. We have a Neato bot vac that runs daily, and we have the dyson pet hair (I actually don't love the Dyson. I think it's poorly built. If money were no object, I'd buy a Miele. If you have a rich family member, I'd throw a Miele on your registry and never look back).

  6. An air purifier. We use this in our bedroom because it's quiet and effective

  7. Bed linens and blankets get washed as often as possible (once a week minimum) because the cats share our bed and our dog loves the blanket I use on the couch. Pillowcases get changed every other night because my asshole cat thinks that is the best place to sleep

  8. If it's that bad, consider allergy shots. They are a huge PITA because of how often you have to go into the doctor to do them, but they work for some people

  9. Exposure/time will actually make a difference in the long run. My pet allergies were at their absolute worst when I was in college and didn't live with a pet. When I would come home and see my mom's cats, it was truly miserable. Now that I've got animals in my own home, it's better than it could be

  10. If you have your own home or are looking for one, hard surface floors are your best friend (wood, tile, concrete, etc). Carpet is awful for holding onto pet dander and hair. We don't own our own place yet, but when we do, the first change I'm making is getting rid of any carpet.

    Edit to add: On the topic of vacuuming, I'm getting this for Christmas and I'm hopeful that it will make vacuuming her spot on the couch easier than hauling the full sized vacuum up there

Cleaning tips!

Here's a great starter kit ($25) for washing / polishing / waxing your car's paint: Amazon link - everything you need except a hose, bucket, and wash mitt.

Keep all windows clean. Keep your wipers clean (yes you have to clean them too). Stoners Invisible Glass and Rain-X on all windows.

Separate all towels. Don't mix your wax towels with your glass towels with your interior towels. You can get some in different colors to help separate them. You need to own a lot of good microfiber towels and separate and label them, keep them clean and dry. Recommend stocking up on Meguiar's Supreme Shine towels: Amazon link You want your towels to contain 17-30% polyamide (nylon), and the rest polyester. Polyamide is what give microfiber it's soft feel and absorbency.

Cabin air filter, change it every 15k-20k miles. These are what your air conditioning is filtered through and it gets dirty. So replace this and you'll have cleaner cabin air!

Vaccum the inside of the car on a regular weekly basis. Dyson DC34 handheld vaccum is the best thing ever: Amazon link Also some oxy-clean car fabric/upholstry cleaner works great for cleaning the car seats once a year- just make sure you dry it and run the A/C.

u/barbaq24 · 3 pointsr/VacuumCleaners

I purchased the 'pivot' black and decker off amazon about a year ago. It's good for cleaning the car, crumbs, quick pick ups. The battery lasts about 15 mins of straight use, but I only ever drain the battery when cleaning the car. I really like mine as a supplement to the big vacuum. It's designed well, the battery works, and it is a great tool for around the house. Also, cleaning the filter is easy, you just take it apart, wash it, and let it dry.

The one you have a link to is pretty much the same thing so I'm sure it's just as good, maybe slightly less effective if it doesn't have the brush attachment.

u/jwallwalrus26 · 4 pointsr/shiba

I've registered for the Dyson vacuum for this very reason. My parents own it and have 5 long haired cats and hardwood floors, and it has done wonders on hardwood and their furniture. I have friends with cats/dogs who have carpet and also swear by the investment.

The dyson vacuum will take care of all your needs and has so many attachments that do incredibly well. The one I've registered for is so much cheaper on Amazon as well (but it is still spendier than most vacuums): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HNUFRQC?ref_=hit_wr_dt_vr_md_pt

For my upholstry (for now since our current vacuum isn't good) I actually bought this little vacuum and it does incredibly well for both my shiba and kai on both my leather and upholstered couches: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001EYFQ28?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00

Bathing your shiba during shedding season will help with loosening the hairs and make grooming easier.

I also suggest the following brushes that have done wonders for my dogs and have helped keep our apartment clean during shedding seasons.

Kong Zoom Groom - great for top coat shedding predominantly, but does get undercoat as well, just not as well.

Furminantor - Great to get rid of undercoat or loosening it up. Some people say it damages the top coat, I personally have never noticed, but don't overuse it because I do think it can cause balding, but overbrushing in general can cause balding.

Double teeth Undercoat Rake: MASTER at pulling out undercoat without any damage to top coat.

Deshedding tool: This is also a magical tool to getting rid of the undercoat. I sometimes think it works the best of all the mentioned ones for undercoat at least for Kiba, Taro's fur seems to respond better to the furminantor, while Kiba doesn't release as much from that.

The soft kitty socks on my $10 and under list would keep my toes nice and "TOASTy" in those drafty dorm towers. Then I would be less inclined to "WhINE" about being cold.
•Riddle 2

I am sure that Arthur Weasley would be fascinated by the handy muggle invention that uses "eckeltricity" to make sweeping a breeze. The Dust Buster can be found on my Organize All the Things list and would help me keep my dorm room clean and tidy without having to use a "BROOM"
•Riddle 3

The shaggy baby boy's "HAT" on my list for Reproductive Unit #3 would be the perfect size for keeping my owl warm and toasty while delivering mail in the winter.
•Riddle 4

Perhaps a copy of the A Feast of Ice and Fire "cookBOOK" would give the house elves some inspiration for the tasty meals they whip up. It can be found on my Books, Glorious, Books list.

My packing skills are dreadful. I would probably need the Foldable Engine Hoist on my Spouse Creature list just to lift my "TRUNK"

Bonus Riddle

The Superman bathrobe that is also found on my Spouse Creature list and would definitely double as a "CAPE" I am a pretty modest person, so this would be required for shared bathrooms.

u/SirMildredPierce · 22 pointsr/Augusta

There are going to be a lot of recommendations from people to hire exterminators, but I would recommend getting the equipment and doing it yourself.

One of the issues is that most exterminators come around once a month, but the life cycle of most roaches is half that, so even if you catch one wave of them, the eggs they are carrying are unaffected and will hatch, grow up, and reproduce within a couple of weeks.

There are basically three things you need to get:

Get some Fipronil Gel: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004GESOI6 Super cheap online, and 10 times more powerful than what you can get at the local store. This is what the pros use. Put this in places like under cabinets in the kitchen, near water sources, etc. Roaches like to rest in warm places. Anyplace in the apartment that is warm is a likely base for the roaches. This might be lighting fixtures, around the hot water pipes. Worst of all they might be inside your electronics such as your television or computers. They also like tight spaces, spaces they can just barely get into. Loose papers, inside the spines of hardcover books, the spaces between a shelf and the wall, places like that. Look for the roach shit, that's always a sure way to recognize where they have been hanging out.

The Fipronil on it's own is a cheap solution, but it's not the best. To really go to war you have to invest in a good sprayer: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0009KM25W You can go for a cheaper one, but I would suggest it's worth the investment. If you solve the problem in the long run, you can easily resell it and recoup most of the cost, though I recommend holding on to it. Remember to let the pressure out when you are done with it, you don't want to ruin the rubber seals on it.

Fill it with Acephate Insecticide: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005662Z6A and spray down the apartment twice a month.

I would also recommend a powerful plugin handheld vacuum such as this: https://www.amazon.com/Eureka-EasyClean-Lightweight-Handheld-71B/dp/B0006HUYGM/ It's powerful enough that it eviscerates the roaches as they get sucked up. A battery operated vacuum is weak enough that they don't die and they just crawl back out.

Lastly, you have to develop the discipline to starve them. They wouldn't be growing in number if they didn't have something to eat. You have to clean *every day*. Everytime you use a dish, immediately wash it after you are done with it. Open up a can of spaghettios? Wash the can out before you throw it away. Only have one trash can in the apartment and put Fipronil in it and keep an eye on it. Don't wait for the bag to be full before you empty it out. Don't leave loose papers around, throw away junk mail immediately. Got a leaky faucet? Get it fixed. Turn off your electronics and unplug them if you aren't using them. Don't leave lights on longer than you need to.

This is *your* war, you have to win it on your own. If you wait around for the apartment manager, or an exterminator to win it for you, you'll be waiting a long time. Why pay someone else to do it when you can use the same exact products they use, and do it yourself.

u/bookchaser · 1 pointr/VacuumCleaners

Okay, just FYI, in my time if a student brought his own vacuum for a single dorm room, he'd be thought of as a 'clean freak.' Substitute a modern term.

If you think the university's vacuum won't have attachments you need, I'd buy a hand vacuum like the Shark Rocket Ultra-Light. Shark, as a brand, is top-rated by Consumer Reports for performance and top-rated by its 7 million members for reliability (repair rates).

The model CR likes the best, of all tested brands, is the Shark Ion W1 WV201, which may be perfect for a dorm because it's so small and wouldn't look out of place if stored on your desk 24/7. The more I look at it, the more I think it's the perfect dorm vac to supplement the university's upright vacuum. CR states it 'was one of the quieter models tested.'

A hand vacuum will also be handy for pulling up food off your bed and tabletop surfaces and around the legs of your bed and desk.

u/septicidal · 1 pointr/InfertilityBabies

I use a long-handled Swiffer duster thingie (it traps dust instead of just moving it around and has an extendable handle so I can reach up high or down low (without bending over).

That being said, air filters will make a big difference at least with circulating dust if not pet hair. If you have central air/forced air heat (ducts) make sure there are good filters on the main unit and they are changed regularly. We have electric heat so this isn't an option for us, but since I have dust mite and pet dander allergies, I have a powerful HEPA air filter for the bedroom. For general cleaning, floors are vacuumed with a Dyson (which has lifetime HEPA filters) - including hardwood and tile, we never sweep just vacuum, since it seems faster and better gets all the cat fur (we have 3 cats). We have the Dyson Animal upright, which we got refurbished to save money. I also recently got a DustBuster with an extendable nozzle, which is great for getting dust/debris on surfaces and in between fully vacuuming the rooms. It doesn't have HEPA filters, but does have filters that seem to trap dust well. This is what I have: http://www.amazon.com/DECKER-CHV1410L-Lithium-Cordless-Buster/dp/B006LXOJC0/

u/veggiecarnage · 2 pointsr/guineapigs

we have this one it works quite well and is relatively easy to clean. the little grey flippy part helps with the fleece suction since it separates the opening from the fabric and helps sweep up the poops. we did have some trouble with this when we were just using raw fleece over towels and we tried to clip/tuck the sides or use one hand to keep it down. pads or fleece flippers makes the vacuuming even easier since it won't suck up the fabric at all its like 30 seconds twice a day for our 3 pigs.

u/21541215415 · 1 pointr/hardware

I clean the interior of my PC about every 2 months with a DataVac. As some people already posted, this can be found here.

Now, for your photo. Yes, crevices of peripherals can get very nasty. I am actually surprised someone didn't post this yet, but Super Clean High Tech Cleaning Compound is the bees knees. I use this stuff all the time.

What it is, is a slime like pliable substance that sticks to small particles. You can roll it over keyboards, mouses, in crevices, over fan grills, etc., and it will pull all the gunk out. I have quite a few packs of these in my desk.

Happy cleaning.

I've got [this] (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fintie-Kindle-Paperwhite-SmartShell-Case/dp/B00JPB83T0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1464332699&sr=8-1&keywords=kindle+case) excellent one. It's super snug, I imagine the button would be pressed if it went down upside down. I'd have thought the screen auto-turn off would still work though.

Also, good point. I have it on 4-5 in bed, and it's still perfectly readable and doesn't disturb others.

u/sinewavesurf · 435 pointsr/CrappyDesign

Ok I was curious and had to look this up. Judging by the listing this is supposed to work like a Swiffer and the listing doesn't explicitly say it's a vacuum. It also has no reviews on Amazon which is always questionable. Still ballsy though and I still admire the hustle lol.

The sweeper adopts electrostatic cotton friction adsorption mode, which mainly adsorbs hair, dust and clothing fluff.

I wish i could recommend the vacuum we own but it's sadly way too pricey. If you're interested in the type it's a miele canister vacuum, I highly recommend it because they work so well but it's quite pricey. I think the lowest price is $299.

For ones that aren't that high priced you might try out this handheld vacuum to quickly suck out any pet hair that may be on furniture.

If you're looking for a larger vacuum that is upright and a lift-away this one might be useful to you. It's lightweight and comes with pet tools.

If upright vacuums aren't you're thing you might like this canister vacuum. It's compact and appears to have an easy empty dirt tank so you might not need to buy vacuum bags which will save you some money.


You should add this adorable little HP pillow to your wishlist :D

u/MoogleMan3 · 1 pointr/buildapc

Ideally, monthly. But a few months apart, like 3 or 4, wouldn't cause any harm either.

For cleaning, I highly recommend a datavac. IMHO, best of the blower style cleaners. Made in the usa with a good motor and washable filter. Been using mine heavily for more than a year now.

u/littlestray · 1 pointr/Pets

In comparison to other haired breeds, rexes (cornish rex, devon rex, et cetera) shed LESS, but they do still shed. All fur sheds.

As for keeping up with the shedding, I've had my eye on this for awhile, I hear good things. Also, keep on top of grooming so you can dispose of a good amount of the fur in the bin instead of slowly all over the house.

Aside from that, it is just a fact of life cat parents accept that everything will get cat hair on it. Everything. So if you don't want a hairless cat and can't cope with shedding, I'd reconsider how much you want a cat. Saying you want a cat but don't want to deal with dander and hair (but no hairless, please) is like saying you want a bird that doesn't make any noise. It's just part of the package.

Vacuum cleaners are supposed to be pretty bad for some reasons, but my mom used one when I was a kid and we never had any problems on that front. These days though, I use one of these: https://www.amazon.com/Metro-Vacuum-ED500P-500-Watt-Electric/dp/B001U899HQ

​

They are a little pricy, but they do a good job and you won't have to deal with replacing canned air.

​

I'd also recommend a small brush for getting the fans.

​

EDIT: https://www.amazon.com/Brushes-Portable-Cleaning-Keyboard-Interior/dp/B07CQH78NS

Something like the toothbrush looking one will do good for cleaning fans off. Alternatively you can just use a cheap toothbrush.

This pet hair eraser hand vac. It is amazing. It works so well, and pet hair is loosened by the rubber grips in the end, so it even pulls out pet hair that's threaded into blankets and the backseat.

How much are you looking to spend?

Metro makes a few products, Datavac. They are around $70- $100, but they aren't heated. I've got This Guy And it's pretty much a mini leaf-blower. Metal housing, not sure it would handle too many "drops", but it seems reasonably well built.


There are some car detailing products are also heated, like the Metro Master Blaster that produced a lot of heated air. Not as hot as like a heat gun, but they will definitely dry things.

u/Jules6146 · 2 pointsr/konmari

For furniture and household touch ups - there is NOTHING better than this tough and light little vacuum. It is so much better than a dustbuster, cordless, and has a million uses (including attachments good at getting pet fur off furniture):

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CCYLBZ0/ref=asc_df_B00CCYLBZ04948394/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B00CCYLBZ0&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167140452627&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=11925709081064229745&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003432&hvtargid=pla-285458060814

For your floors - a Roomba is wonderful! Let it do its thing every day or two. It will help you keep your sanity. Pro tip - in a few years when it stops working don't throw it out - a new internal battery can be ordered online for about $25 and installed easily with just a screwdriver!

What are you talking about, it getting warm? It doesn't get warm. This thing has BURNED me before. Still 10x better then canned air though, and more powerful.

u/NebraskaSkyline · 2 pointsr/blogsnark

Not sure if it's exactly what you mean, since I use dustbuster as a catchall term for hand vac and others may not ... but this thing hasn't done me wrong. https://www.amazon.com/BLACK-DECKER-Dustbuster-Cordless-CHV1410L/dp/B006LXOJC0

(Duh, I just realized dustbuster is literally in the product name so it prob is what you were referring to. Anyhow).

Its best feature is that it picks up kitty litter that doesn't then shake back out when you turn it off. My maintenance guys gunked mine up with drywall dust and it still rinsed clean and works like new. Charges quickly, sits and goes for long times without needing plugging in. I'm really pleased with it.

The only downside is that the slim head that slides out is a little touchy/either doesn't lock in place well or locks too well and is hard to slide, and the little whiskery bit for carpets is kind of eh. But it's a tough little bastard on cat hair and all the crap I spill in my kitchen constantly. Plus SoCal interstate dust through that comes in constantly through the windows. Thumbs up from me.

u/Romkslrqusz · 2 pointsr/techsupport

My favorite tool for the task is a DataVac - pretty much a high intensity blower. It’s stronger than canned air by a long shot, and even blasts of that extra ‘sticky’ dust. Kinda pricey though ($80 USD)

Dry Fiber + Friction = static so don’t use the wipes you were talking about. Anything you’re going to be rubbing against components should be lightly saturated in rubbing alcohol.

Canned air works alright, especially if you’ve only got a light amount of dust.

I have one of them. It doesn't give 360 degrees, but it's not far off. Put it this way, if that doesn't catch them, you can pretty much narrow down the culprit to 3 or 4 houses. Park a little further down the next day and you'll get them.

Alternative: Find a sympathetic colleague that already has a dash cam. Park on the same street, facing each other.

Thanks for the response.

Can you elaborate on how exactly cat litter damages a vacuum? We just bought a new Sebo vacuum that we're happy with, but since it was quite expensive, we're trying to find a separate machine to use for the litter.

The Whoosh looks nice, but event that's big. We're really looking for something like this: http://www.amazon.com/DECKER-CHV1410L-Lithium-Cordless-Buster/dp/B006LXOJC0

Should we just assume that anything we buy would break down quickly due to the litter and just go with the cheapest option that would be powerful enough to suck up the litter?

I just use a hand vacuum. I don't bother, but if one wanted to be extra careful, they could put down a towel and vacuum the towel afterwards instead of the floor/counter top. Plastic bags are getting harder to come by since they're not allowed in my state's grocery stores, and reducing our consumption of plastic is a good thing, anyway.

If you need to cover a larger section of floor, Amazon also sells gym style floor tiles. They're basically the same as the kid ones but a little thicker and without any pattern. They're usually cheaper too.

I also recommend that people add a small hand vac to their registries. I have this one and with a toddler it gets used several times a day (by both of us!).

Not OP, but I use Nextbase 312w that has GPS tracking (coordinates), speed, your reg (if you put it in) etc. and is 1080p. Very good for not too expensive. There are better models but in my opinion the price didn't justify it.

If you are only going to use it for computer cleaning. Just stick to compressed air. It would take years to pay you back. And by then it might be out of warranty and broken.

I bought this on amazon and it works great. It has a lot of suction, and also has a spinning brush. The only downsides I have noticed are that it's somewhat loud (mostly the sound of the suction, not the motor) and that it is a bit hard to clean since it's a canister vac.
Edit: it's also not cordless, like the reply above me is talking about. I believe there is a cordless model though.

Dust is nothing really to worry about. You just need to clean it out every now and again. You can use something like this instead of buying those compressed air cans.

I use a pool pump. It might be as powerful as the one I linked but it does the job ok. I may pick up that duster at some point when I can afford too.

First thing I would do is scan for any viruses. Get Malwarebytes and use that as well.

If nothing comes up with those, I would open up your PC and clean the dust out. Preferably with a PC Vac. Something like this.

If none of that works, you'll might want to think about replacing hardware. Maybe getting a new HDD or switching to an SSD if you don't already have one.

All the cheap ones are brands that I've never heard of so can't recommend on that basis, but as long as you aren't expecting really high accuracy and don't use it on high voltage stuff, just pick one you like the look of and make sure it comes with leads, this was the first one I saw that looked reasonable.

But if I were to get one nowadays, I’d probably get one from Anker, purely because I’ve had great experience with their other products, and their customer service is top notch when it comes to guarantees.

Don't waste your money on those air cans. They can get expensive if you keep buying them, and you'll have to let them cool down, because they get cold, and start to lose pressure over time of use.

Get one of these. I have one, and it's amazing. It does a better job dusting your PC, and it doesn't get cold, or lose pressure from long use. Not to mention, it'll be cheaper in the long run. Also, it's environmentally friendlier than those cans too.

Just a warning, it'll be loud, but it's very powerful.

u/britjh22 · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

I use my Datavac that I already have from being a computer nerd, great for blowing out my immersion cooler and other lines, and it's nice and portable compared to most air compressors. That does the bulk of getting them dry.

u/Kopachris · 30 pointsr/homelab

I worked in a casino for six years, repairing slot machines for two of those. I know a thing or two about cleaning electronics that have been subjected to heavy tobacco smoke.

  1. Power it off, unplug it, ground the chassis. You'll probably want to do this in a garage or outside
  2. Go over it with a shop vac first, then an air compressor to get the hard-to-suck stuff. If you don't have an air compressor, I always used one of these at work and highly recommend them for cleaning your computers and servers. Be sure to get the fans really well--hold them with your finger to keep them from spinning real fast
  3. Pull everything out of it. Everything--power supply, hard drives, even the motherboard. Go over the components and the chassis and use the air compressor some more
  4. If it still needs more cleaning:
  • Medium-heavy degreaser to take out nicotine/tar and spilled drink stains on the metal chassis
  • Simple Green or other all-purpose cleaner diluted to medium strength according to the directions for plastic surfaces and the outside of covered components. Lint-free/microfiber cloth, you know the deal.
  • Circuit boards can be washed with regular soap and water, provided they're thoroughly dried before power is applied again. I always just used an air compressor and paper towels, but I've heard people say you can put them in your oven on its lowest temperature as long as you keep a close eye on them--they can warp if you're not careful. If you need to wash the motherboard, remove the CPU and heatsink. Rubbing alcohol and cotton swabs are good for removing thermal paste; you'll want to remove and replace it any time you separate the heatsink from the chip.

When you use compressed air, make sure your PC is off. Put your finger in your fan then shoot the air because you can wreck your fans by making them spin like crazy. Happened to me years ago.

yes indeed, a "datavac electric duster" (first stage of most repair jobs done in my dusty emporium)

u/ConradBHart42 · 8 pointsr/buildapcsales

I have this model and it works well. You can usually find them on sale for $40-$50 if you're not in a hurry to buy. As the amazon page states, they're more economical because it's a one-time purchase and then pennies of electricity over the lifetime of it. It is greener though because it doesn't create a waste product and presumable obviates the demand for several cans of duster in the future.

The biggest downside is that these things are loud as fuck. If you want to be super cautious, some foam earplugs are in order. Regular headphones are probably sufficient. Most people would use them without anything covering their ears and be just fine anyway.

I would recommend, that instead of spending heinous amounts of money on terrible for you and the environment compressed gas canisters, get a blower, like this, or get a small air compressor and a blower attachment. no noxious gasses, and all dust gets blown away, over and over.

Get the dog hair off BEFORE you steam clean it otherwise it's going to be a huge mess. I use this pet hair vacuum but if you don't have your own pets, this pet hair remover is cheap and people swear by it.

i bought a metro vac from amazon years ago. got in on sale for around 45. it has paid off with cleaning 4 very dusty pc's every few months

u/Kasendou · 3 pointsr/PS4

Just don't turn the can upside down or at any extreme angle when you're spraying it and don't spray it into your PS4 when it's on and running. (Turn it off, unplug it from the wall for a few minutes).

Instead of compressed air, I just bought one of these which has already paid for itself in how much dusting I've done on my electronics.

*and since you're asking about this, some additional tips - you'll want to clean the outside first (with a soft/microfibre rag and q-tips for the inner edges) then maybe use a vaccuum cleaner w/ attachment to suck out any of the loose dust first.

  1. Clean the room your PC is in, set up fans for positive air pressure (More intakes than exhausts), and use dust filters on those intakes.

  2. Use one of these bad boys.

Just looking, [I'd go with this.] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0006HUYGM/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_s86AzbQ1PDSG5)

If you can, stay away from any vacuum that uses a battery. I have had absolutely no luck with battery vacuums (or hair clippers/trimmers.) The batteries always begin to lose charge and just can't keep a charge longer than a few minutes.

That linked vacuum has a detachable hose to get into tight spaces. Yeah, a cord is inconvenient, but a corded vacuum (or clippers) have never failed me.

u/Mr_Quackers · 3 pointsr/pcmasterrace

There is a risk for static and moisture. I recommend buying a specific electronic duster to be the safest.

u/ReeG · 1 pointr/pcgaming

I bought similar electric duster about a year ago called DataVac and it's so much better compared to compressed air cans that get cold and lose pressure the more you use them. The first time I used this thing dust was flying out places the compressed air could never get to. Works great on other stuff around the house too.

u/JonathanSCE · 2 pointsr/computers

I bought an electric duster to save on disposable air cans. Also, don't have to stop every two minutes because the can is too cold or lost of pressure.

I have dust filters on mine too but removed them: https://imgur.com/gallery/dOnsV9m (scroll near the middle of album to see them)

I found the temps dropped 5C without the filters.

Instead I have been using this to clean the rigs

Data Vac is just a brand name (or model, or something) of a handheld air compressor designed/marketed to PC air dusting.

Get a Data Vac and do it yourself and never buy canned air again.

> Features: The sweeper adopts electrostatic cotton friction adsorption mode, which mainly adsorbs hair, dust and clothing fluff.

Weird.

u/SolidBladez · 2 pointsr/buildapc

Most will recommend using a canned air duster (like this). The only thing I hate about them is that they're inefficient for using over long periods of time and aren't cost effective. I'd recommend using a blow vac like this.

u/cletus-cassidy · 1 pointr/watercooling

We have a small corded vacuum http://amzn.to/2r9ue92 which I picked based on an earlier version of http://thesweethome.com/reviews/best-handheld-vacuum/

Handheld means crawling around, but we have a bunch of carpet so we need some kind of a vacuum, and we didn't want to store even a small upright vacuum.
