Default Best method for cleaning

What is your best method for cleaning out all that dust and tar?
After the brush and the hoover, do you set a fire? Use solvents?
I have some HH S500D's and Amcron DC300a's for cleaning and I do not want to damage.

brush and compressed air then IPA (Isopropyl alcohol) on cotton buds or cloth or toothbrush

Please do not use a "Hoover" or any other brand of Vacumn unless its a special antistatic one like a TonaVac Ordinary ones generate static charges that can easly blow electronices.

I once put a vintage wrinkle painted chassis in dishwasher, but took a bare steel one from there.

Hi Anatoliy,
I like that! Some might look a lot better without paint.

Air and brush for me, then disassemble and clean the pieces if I am rebuilding. Everything off, outputs - everything. Water soluble cleaning products.
