I'm a member of the "the less you mess around with your lens, the better" school, but a little bit of breath won't hurt your lens. I have great results using the Lenspen products, and rarely need to breathe on a lens - maybe twice in 2 or 3 years. I've never needed to use any solvents whilst using the Lenspen.

Here's a pdf that mentions using breath on a lens.

Breath is OK on lenses, but I would not use it for a sensor. I think Isopropanol is the safest bet for cleaning the glass in front of a sensor.
