A list of things I use to keep my gear clean:

A chamois cloth for wiping water spray of the gear in the field

polyvinyl alcohol cleaning putty and Rodico putty for the body and lens barrel

Ether, lens or sensor cleaning fluid for cleaning the glass elements on a lens, also Pec Pads or lens tissue, clean microfiber lens cloth for dry-cleaning, lens brush

Dealing with sand:

I tape with gaff tape over sensitive areas on the camera.

I use a blower only when appropriate because I find it tends to get the sand into areas hard or impossible to reach. Instead, I use a small vacuum cleaner, a fine-tipped brush, and pointy toothpicks for cleaning. I also use cleaning putty.

An awful large arsenal of different cleaning products. Are you a car detailer, a cosmetologist or a camera cleaning kit retailer?

My gear gets dirty and wet in motocross, BMX, slalom and so on. I usually give a quick dash for my camera and lens under the shower and wipe the excess water off with a towel. Has worked well for a couple of decades.
