You must be careful, because Co2 could cause water droplets or condensation...

yeah...didn't think of that...but isn't CO2 used in those little "duster" things that you can buy?? its just a can w/ a small tube thingy you can put at the end (like a wd40 tube) and spray air?? im pretty sure its CO2...its supposed to be water free...but idk...correct me if im wrong ... or if you just think im wrong both are prollly true

earlier i meant wouldnt, but yes co2 is used as compressed air to clean keyboards... but still they can get really cold and ruin your components inside your computer if too much co2 is moved around (co2 movement gets colder).
