clear office tape works for me. the corners slides right in, and the static usually lifts up the dust, if it's dust.

i know this is an old thread but was curious, do you reckon if left the dust would eventually make its way to under the screen? i have a case around my edges and forget the dust is there !

Don't try needles it could damage the touchscreen if not handled properly. So tough paper folded in a bit edgy way would do fine for dry dust cleaning. Or else you can try the service center cleanup once in a quarter .
