Dry spot removers won't do the job. You probaly need to remove it with a q-tip and alcohol. Then you need the spot remover for the lints that will be introduced that way. Ugly surgery on the sensor. Maybe someone has a better idea.

DO NOT use a q-tip! Unless you want a million pieces of dust all over the sensor!

I use sensor swabs on my K-5 for stubborn dust or the rare oily smears. Sometimes needs a bit of extra isopropyl alcohol (propan-2-ol) to lift really stuck on bits.

Not sure what cleaning fluid the K-70 is compatible with though. Some sensor coatings don't like ethanol others don't like propan-2-ol or other cleaning fluids.
