The brush option is good idea but I would caution anyone to make sure you dont have oil on your sensor first. The last thing you want to do is get oil on your new brush or to smear oil all over your sensor. The copper hill images brush can be washed and reused but I would still avoid getting oil on it. My suggestion is wet cleanings to remove any oil first and later you can use a brush.

Definitely a valid concern. However, all is not lost if you get oil on a Nylon bristle cosmetic brush. Clean it as you did initially with diswashing detergent and do a final rinse in distilled water.

Once the brush is dry, clean a lens filter with Eclipse and test the brush on it. See if it leaves an oily smudge. If so, clean it again.
