Sensor swabs (type 3) w/ eclipse fluid is the easiest and most fail-proof:

If you're going to do it a lot, you can also get a nice kit...just google "copper hill basic kit"

Make sure you blow the sensor off with a good blower before doing the wet clean!


When a blower is used, dont you basically just blow the dust off the sensor and to other parts inside the camera?

When you wet clean the sensor, is visual inspection good enough to ensure no dust is left on the sensor - otherwise dust will scratch the sensor during the wet clean?
