The only cleaning I do myself is with air. I do not dare touching the sensor with anything - not even blowing on it with my mouth. Even if exhaled air would not contain saliva particles, it is apparently slightly acidic, and than may damage sensors or lens coating.

What I use is a lens blower, like a Giottos Rocket Air Blower.

There are also canned air blowers like Beseler Duster. However, I have so far never tried any on my sensor, and I am not sure it is a good idea.

Air definitely will not clean my sensor.  It's got streaks & what looks like a bit of a film on it in places.
