I use the manual bulb-type air blower and  a good and very soft painting
brush with good results. I always inspect the negatives and slides with a
Rodenstock magnifying glass and a lightning box, both before cleaning and
just before inserting the feeder in the scanner. Afer adopting this
procedure, the number of rescans due to dust is much lower.

I never tried PEC-12 fluid because I never found it. Anybody knows where I
can find it (or a similar product) in Europe.

| Compressed air is good (but check the label and be sure no chemicals are
coming out with the air - some have recommended a manual bulb-type air
blower), and if needs be PEC-12 fluid applied sparingly with PEC pads.
