This explains in further detail the sensors and material used.

This video for nikon japan shows you the HIGHLY technical equipment used to clean the sensor. LOL.

One thing to note. They are actually using the surface of the wipe in a circular motion which in a way is far more DANGEROUS because it can pick up a particle and have a nice circular scratching impact. The copper hill method or most swabs make one single pass. In fact the copper hill quickstrips are sold at such a reasonable price that I make one single pass at the top and discard it. This is ti avoid ever picking up anything from the sensor sides and getting it back onto the sensor.

And these folks explain in further detail

Read the following part:

"Most of the manufacturers recognize this and are also looking for ways to have you accomplish this successfully on your own. They know it isn't economical or feasible for you to be shipping your camera to them every time you get dust. You can expect changes in the future from some of these manufacturers. In Japan, Nikon, has already started selling a swab and methanol, sensor cleaning kit to consumers, but they have yet to make them available in the USA. The independent repair shops would love to have this extra business, they understand the need for regular sensor cleanings. Some, who do not feel comfortable, should have a repair shop accomplish this for you, but there are many of you out there who can accomplish this on your own with just a little bit of guidance."

"The method the majority of the camera repair industry use is the "swab and methanol" method. As a professional camera repairman and the owner of multiple Digital SLR Cameras, I too feel that this is the best and most consistent method."

Do as you wish but I understand that unless a nikon tech comes on this thread, uploads his nikon ID card and says it is okay, you will continue to dispute it.

Here is the nikon kit sold in japan. High tech stuff right? You even get a nice painters brush
