Default Miniature vacuum/blower

Was cleaning the interior of my car today and wished there is a miniature vacuum / blower to clean the small & tight corners, where a towel, no matter how small you make it, won't do. I'm sure you know what I mean.

I've seen many Infomercials that claim they have such a product, but I never believe them.

So my question is, do you know of a reputable company that make such a device (e.g Black & Decker).

You could always resort to the Drill Instructor's favorite tool for cleaning small and large areas... a toothbrush! Works every time. Just brush and vacuum up the stuff brushed loose. No special Black & Decker tool needed.

(You really needed advice on this?)

I've never found one small enough to maneuver in those cramped spaces that had enough power to be worth while. The tooth brush idea sounds like a good one. I'd buy a cheap one and heat the handle so a little offset could be bent into it.

If you have a Shop-Vac type vacuum, there are different detail attachment kits available. I have one similar to this GUARDAIR Mini Vacuum Attachment Kit, Black - Air Gun Accessories - 3ARC1|MNVAC - Grainger Industrial Supply and it's been perfect for what you were asking about and countless other uses.

Thank you, guys.

Dave, I use something better than a toothbrush, a painter's brush. But that only moves stuff from one place to another.

Bryan, found that kit in Amazon. Cool. Will buy one in my next order.

Thanks, mate.
