    Help cleaning dremel bits out of PC.

    I was swapping motherboards and saw my HDD has a screw in the bay that won't budge, what better time to it then now. Anyway the only way I could unscrew the ******* was using a dremel to cut it and use a flathead screwdriver to take it out, problem is I am very worried about the sparks/metal pieces that may have gotten into my pc case. Right now my case is completely empty and just has the case fans and wires.
    How can I clean this safely and thoroughly? I really don't want to mess up my pc when I put it back together. Magnet? Vacuum? Compressed air? Thanks so much

    Perhaps then wipe out the case with a cloth soaked in industrial alcohol (the 96% stuff you get for cleaning not drinking).

    That stuff is safe and excellent for dissolving grime stuff sticks to.

    A splash in your bucket is good for cleaning windows (glass not operating system) too and pretty much anything around the house so you needn't feel bad getting a big bottle. It only costs about 0.89 a liter here in the supermarket.

    Use duck tape to catch the droppings. They stick very well to tape.

    Duct Tape may be a better description

    Or for removing Hairs you could try Gorilla Tape
