Dusting tube amp


I know a lot of people recommend canned air, which I will use as step two, but I worry about blowing dust into the amp.

Does anyone use a small duster like a swiffer to dust the surface of the amp and maybe run lightly over and around the tubes to remove dust?

Sure, I do.
Try a small paint brush approximately 1 inch wide. Brush the dusty areas while holding a vacuum cleaner hose directly over the area being dusted. No dust will go inside of your amp using this method.
Agree, holding the vacuum hose nozzle anywhere near the dusting will draw 100% of the dust into the vacuum.
The vacuum technique is an excellent idea. To take it a step further, have it performed by your personal french maid. Or in Elizabeth's case, personal pool boy.

Or your significant other, dressed in a french maid or pool boy outfit, as is your wont. Or both. but be careful w that vacuum!!! ;~)
Swamp, we'll assume in such a scenario, you will be playing the pool boy given your propensity of donning speedos:)
I notice Elizabeth has wisely declined to jump in!
I didn't realize what I was starting. Adding the cost of a French Maid will make an already expensive hobby even more so.

But it could also make it even more enjoyable!
A french maid may not initially understand hifi equipment maintenance.... and I would not be opposed to providing some hands on training. Purely educationally speaking.
Latex catsuit... Ah, Julie Newmar (!!), in case anyone remembers (but if you're of the right age, how could you forget?). Thank you, Elizabeth.

Excellent observation, Isochronism. Unfortunately, you and I know Swampwalker's odd fashion choices all too well.

You better sit down before I tell you about the Swamp's latest indescretion. OK, ready? Here it is: He's been spotted around town lately wearing a French maid's oufit. He told me he likes it because he can integrate the speedo with it so well. He also said he just needs to pass his "Prancing and Mincing" class and he'll finally (after 12 years)get his degree from Cabana Boy college.

What's next with this guy?
Oops, the antecedent to my note has gone... so, um, never mind (or supply your own, I guess).
