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.

Poor little spider...

May hell have a nice little hotspot for him 😬

There's yet another advantage mirrorless cameras have!

Sorry, back to the subject: Yes, either get a wet cleaning kit, i doubt the dry one will do. I'd avoid using any chemical that's not specifically made for cleaning sensors. Or go to a camera shop and ask them to do it for you.

I'll try and dry clean first, I have to do the K-30 too but it has a stubborn spot on it so may need a wet kit. There is no way I'd use anything not specially designed for it. I have never wet cleaned a sensor and need a specific recommendation.

No camera shop, I'm a self-do obsessive, if I could bury myself after my death I'd do it 😀

Lol, OK I get the picture.

Since 2010 I've cleaned the K5 a half dozen times, and the K1, not at all. Usually caution and the blower does the job. But it's pretty easy and straightforward, just get a kit and go for it. My cleaning kit is old, so I can't give an up-to-date recommendation...
