Re: Help, did I screw up my sensor?

You are being excessively paranoid.  The coating on the glass plate in front of the sensor (you aren't touching the sensor itself) is pretty hard.  A tiny bit of saliva acid isn't going to hurt it (nor help it much).

Thousands of photographers have dribbled gallons of various fluids on the sensor covers over the years.  Yes, you can screw it up, but it takes some doing.  Using a wet cleaning method (Copperhill) with good solvents and CLEAN supplies is quite safe.

Using an electostatic method with a fine nylon brush (Visible Dust) is even safer although not quite a thorough and doesn't work on oily deposits.

Relax.
