IMO, Visible Dust products are over-priced. If you cannot get Copper Hill Images products in the UK, consider getting one or more generic swabs, a pack of PEC PADs (Peter Piper picked a pack of PEC PADs...) to replace the pads on the swab, a bottle of Eclipse liquid, and a Nylon cosmetic brush.


Good advice Robin, as usual. Copperhill ships several cleaning kits internationally, here is one:

Copper hill kit

Only one time have I left a streak with Eclipse, I just used a dry Quikstrip very gently and it cleaned it right up. I believe I didn't wait long enough after applying the fluid before swabbing, they say to give it 15 to 20 seconds.

BTW, you get 100 strips in each kit which should last a couple of years, darn good value compared to V-Swabs.

Good luck,
