Also try some contact cleaner (on the slot itself), or alcohol with a cotton swab.

i recommend the compressed air, a wet cotton swab can loose many fibers against a rough surface

or maybe get a piece of clean cloth, wrap it around a hard flat object (like a blunt knife you would use to eat with) and then use that
