    For basic wiping it's wise to use just warm water and a soft cloth. No detergents or abrasive rags. For dust, blowing an sir duster at the fans will just blow dust back in. I prefer a vacuum or some other method to get dust away.

    My these cents.

    It is never a good idea to use a vacuum on a computer. The high speed air "rubbing" against the plastic of the vacuum hose creates static electricity which can fry the machine if it arcs somewhere unfortunate.
