    Where to buy compressed air

    Ok, may sound like a stupid question, but where in the UK can you buy those cans of compressed air to clean your computer, but cheap? I mean 7/8 for a small can of air?!

    Tried your local hardware shop? Failing that, go to B&Q or somewhere like that, I'm sure they'd stock them.

    Does this really work then? What is the purpose of the compressed air?

    Its used to spray inside of computers or at hardware in order to blow away the dust.

    Works wonders

    try ur local office supply store or electronics store. in canada we have a staples and can get cans cheap there.

    and yes, it works wonders for electronics that u dont want to touch a vacuum to.

    SIDE NOTE:

    great when u turn the can upside down and spray friends (comes out as really cold air that turns to frost and can shock ppl )

    I got my last couple cans of compressed air from Maplin. They seem to have branches everywhere these days, and it's at the bargain price of 4.99 there as well.
