    Default Where to buy printer dust covers?

    Anyone knows where to buy these dust covers for specific printer/scanner models? These used to be in abundance many years ago but can no longer be found in Sim Lim/Funan and even Sungei Road.

    Use "Good Morning" towel is much cheaper and also washable.

    I stay high up and very breezy. I can try with towel but they tend to be blown off. Other requiring a paper weight, towel only cover the top and does not prevent dust being blown in from the sides.

    So would still prefer a proper dust cover. Where did they all go? Years ago it is so easy to get them.

    Belkin makes them.
    Very well made.
    Various dimensions.
    Harvey Norman used to sell them.
    SLS should have.

    Why are you thinking about Sion going commando under his Sarong?

    Actually the feeling of being free is quite shiok.

    A quick update. I picked up a washing machine cover for $2 at Daiso. Cut it into 2 and then trim further. Tomorrow going to sew the seams and the edges. That should do for both my scanner and printer.
