I'm not a big fan of wet cleaning. And with dry tools today, it's not needed. Here is everything you need to keep your sensor clean as the day you got it with no solutions needed! And it won't even break the bank...total cost is under $100

I use that set up and it works without a hitch!

If it works for you, that's fine. But the items you posted have absolutely NO effect on stuck-on dust specks and lubricant. For that you need a wet cleaning kit such as this one:

Wet & Dry Sensor Kit

I have the sensor pen and it works OK for picking up loose dust but I had no luck with it on the more stubborn particles and oil. I would never use an adhesive on my sensor, no matter what anyone says.

So you can mess around all you want but nothing beats a wet cleaning with Eclipse - nothing.


Not true at all. I had some smears that came right off.

That's fine but you start your post with "I'm not a fan of wet cleaning" so that tells me a lot about your mindset. For whatever reason you prefer dry tools and claim that they remove lubricant. For a lot of people that simply is not true and I've tried almost every product out there, so I'm not just trying to get anyone to buy one particular product. I'm talking with a lot of hands-on experience behind me.

If you get nervous at the prospect of swabbing your sensor then you (and others) should absolutely, positively not do it. Just stay with what you've got.
