Replacing LVDS - how to do it without getting dust under screen

I'm replacing a macbook LVDS cable soon, which involves removing the glass, I've done it a couple times before but I was just wondering if anyone had advice for doing it without getting dust under the panel. The last couple times I've done it I've had to deal with specks of dust getting trapped in the screen forever.

I've read that I can put painters tape over the LCD and on the back of the glass as soon as I separate the two and peel off right before I attach both together again. Has anyone else done anything like this?

Don't think thats to good an idea as the adhesive can leave a mark.

We created a clean box using a cardboard box which we spray painted with some gloss paint to seal the paper fibers of the inside.

We then cut a hole for a fan with a HEPA filter to blow clean air in, and placed a sheet of plastic (anti-static) across at an angle so we could see into the box (hinged. The lower part of the box front is left open for our hands. We set it up so we could fold it up when not needed.

With a can of can'ed air, glass wipes and a stickily roller we clean the surfaces and put things back together.
