Tips on getting body dust out before paint?

So soon I hope to have the car ready for paint. What I am looking for are tips on getting the sanding and accumulated dust out of the car before I send it off.
Air and a vaccum is what I have.
Thanks in advance for any tips

"Air and a vaccum is what I have."

That's what I would use. If the vehicle is covered well enough where water won't hit bare metal or hurt anything, you can rinse it off with water. Then you will need to blow it off real good to remove all of the water from the crevices.

If you are painting it yourself, you need to make sure that you gat it all out. If you are taking it somewhere for them to paint, they should make sure it is clean before painting anyway. In that case, you still want to remove as much as you reasonably can, just to be safe.
