I always keep a can of compressed air handy to clean my computer keyboard. Now I also spray my clipper blades with it. I remove the blade from the clippers, and the compressed air blows the fur off the blade, which makes it easier to clean and lubricate. I find the compressed air to be more effective than a brush, and you don't have a dirty brush hanging around.
