How do I clean the surface of a dusty printer?

I haven't used my HP printer in years. I know it still works, but because it has been sitting untouched in my dad's automotive repair shop all this time, its surface is covered with a layer of dust and dirt. I can tell water won't do the job; it really is extremely dirty. Is it safe to use a cleaner of some kind? And if so, what cleaner would be best? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Cleaning wipe work best on electrioncs. I use Lysol wipes on my computers. I also use them at work in the IT department. They work great on the very dirty keyboards, mouse's monitor's and printers in the tech shop area.

Computer cleaning products would be best. You can get "foaming antistatic cleaner" which you spray on and wipe off. You can also get cleaning wipes.
