RE: Hardware Cleaning
Yup, found it in Brazil the way you suggested. There's only 1 small problem as it's $25 per can!

RE: Hardware Cleaning
I researched how to clean a computer and some folks say vacuuming and using compressed air will/can damage your parts.

You can also purchase a small air compressor (like one for bike tires) and have it forever instead of buying cans/

Technically anything you do with electronics can damage them. It's about risk assessment. If your machine is unplugged and you dust it out, then wait for everything to settle before powering back on then there's a very slim chance that something will be damaged.

RE: Hardware Cleaning
Can we try those electrical air pumps we use for bikes? I think it should work.

RE: Hardware Cleaning
The only thing about compressed air is that you get condensation but that is only if you don't use it in bursts.

Try it on your hand first, to see how powerful they are. Might be too much for fragile PC components.
