For straight dusting you can use one of those static/feather duster things, they work pretty good. For actual cleaning under the strings I use a chunk of an old flannel shirt or sheet and gently slide it underneath and move it up and down the fretboard, it works good.

lemon oil

That all depends on the fact that if you remover all your strings when you restring. Or just one at the time, and if you do remove all of them this is the best time to clean your fret board use lemon oil on a cosmetic pad and rub it in to work out all the dirt. Them with a clean pad remove the rest of the oil. And let it sit before putting the strings on. Then after each play you should give the guitar a wipe down from all the oils on your fingers and arms

Mooh gave me this tip. If there is a Dollerama or similar dollar store nearby, check it out for some cheap-as-a-dollar microfiber clothes.

I do that too....but I dont bother with the gentle part. If my strings are going to break because of a piece of cloth under them then they need to be changed anyway.
