I've been happy with the results of simply blowing the dust out with a Giotto Rocket Blower. I have yet to need to actually touch the sensor when cleaning. Your results may vary.

Hi all. I managed to pick up some sensor swabs in Dublin today. 1 shop (out of 7/8) has them in size 2! 3 swabs later and my sensor is looking pretty good, it could probably be cleaner, but I'm not about to use another swab since they cost 65 euro! I think I'll be buying them online in future...

Thanks for all the advice.
