Dust usually doesn't effect the image at all, unless it gets extreme. You're probably more likely to cause a problem by trying to clean it than just leaving it alone.
However, a rocket blower type device is what was recommended to me as well. If you absolutely have to clean it, my understanding is that you should treat it like a camera lens and use special microfiber cloth or lens paper specifically designed for cleaning optics.
Personally, other than a rocket blower, I'd leave it alone unless its bad enough where you see problems on the screen.
