Just a quick point.  If you decide to use a nylon brush from the cosmetic counter, be sure to wash it thoroughly (like 4 or 5 times) in mild detergent and then let it dry completely.  When sold, they are covered with a fine powder that apparently helps with cosmetics but makes a mess of a sensor.

But Robin is correct.  It's the same brush that Visible Dust charges a bunch of money for.

(Source is a Digital Lloyd article from something like 2008 where he took pictures of dust coming off a new cosmetic brush - fairly convincing evidence, anyway it's easy to do.)
