Need to clean sensor - advice needed

I have a NEX-7 and although I have had some dust on the sensor I have really got a problem now. I borrowed a blower and brush from a friend, but sadly the brush can't have been clean and actually ended up smearing something on the sensor. I was due to fly to Kenya on holiday the next day so was at a loss as to a solution.

Went to Jessops and was advised that there delixe cleaning kit could be used to clean the sensor. It comes with a swab and isopropyl alcohol. I cleaned off the mark but the alcohol just doesn't evaporate quick enough leaving "water marks". Whilst in Kenya I had to change the lens a couple of times and think I have got a bit if dust in to the sensor again.

I want to get the sensor properly cleaned, can anyone in UK recommend either a foolproof porduct to use or a place I can send it to?

Thanks,

Richard
