Windows 7: Compressed Air

Compressed Air

I try to use compressed air to clean out my computer every month. I recently bought a different brand than I had been using. I read the label on it, probably something I had not done before. On the front it says "Dust and Lint Remover" rather than jus "Compressed Air". It also says that it can be ignited under certain circumstances, do not use on hot surfaces or spark producing appliances. It says do not inhale. == This really doesn't sound like what I would want to put on my computer or maybe all compressed air has this on the label and I just haven't read it before. Can someone help me out?

Does it say what the contents are?

It takes a REALLY hot surface to ignite something, even butane, I doubt anything in your computer even after just turning it off could do that. But there is always the chance of a spark though so definately turn off an unplug.

Ive noticed this too.

Somewhere along the line Compressed Air turned into 'Dust Remover"

Guess the same as:
Toilet Paper became --> Bathroom Tissue
A Used car is now --> A Pre-Owned Vehicle ...

My Can says similar, but only says : Contents under Pressure & Contains Diflourinethane as far as ingredents are concerned.

Mine has the DiFlour..... as an ingrediant as well. I guess I am OK then. I appreciate your looking on your can.

Use it correctly side up
If you use it upside down make sure you spray somewhere first because the compressed air will freeze at first. I did it to my hands, my oh my what i do sometimes. Then proceeded to testing it out on myself once again and my brother like idiots. lol. The freeze burn lasted a week and hurt a lot.

Using compressed air.
I bought a can of compressed air to clean the keyboard of my laptop. When I used it, the air came out very cold. I'm sure that is not unusual since that's the way air conditioners work. However it made the keyboard very frosty and when it thawed out the keyboard was a little damp. It makes me...
