If you have dust, you should definitely try washing your sand. Sand dust might muck up the workings of your PC and projector, and if your sand is silica/quartz, i.e., the kind of stuff you find at the beach, then you don’t want to breathe in large amounts, either.

Sandtastik sand, the brand we recommend, has a cleaning guide that might or might not work for you.

An alternative idea, off the top of my head, would be to dump a bunch of sand into a bucket, fill the bucket with water, and then use a plastic mesh kitchen strainer to fish handfuls of sand back out of the bucket, shaking on the way out to get rid of fine dust. If your sand is finer than the finest strainer you can find, you could try using a cheese cloth, but I’m just spitballing at this point.
