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.

Subject: filmscanners: Preparing to scan old slides
| I have several trays of 35mm slides that I want to scan. Some of these
| slides are still in the carousel where they were placed 25+ years ago. No
| doubt there is dust. Any advice on how to minimize the dust? Use a vacuum
| cleaner? Compressed air? Thanks in advance.
