This is why I waited to change my plugs until I visited my parents. My dad's air
compresser make short work of cleaning out the spark plug recesses and just
general "cleaning" of the top of the engine. If you don't have an air compressor
available, maybe you can stop at a service station and sweet talk them into
blowing the dirt/junk out for you.

I just went in and asked for Bosch plugs for my car. The part number they came
up with was the triple electrode stock plug. I still had to order them, as they
didn't have them in stock.
