Rocket Blower for your sensor is the easiest, cheapest, and safest device you can find for around $8. It's done the trick over the past 2 years or so for my equipment.

I also like the Nikon lens pen tool for getting the front and rear elements clean on my lenses.

Finally, if you must use a wet cleaner for your sensor, then the Pentax kit is well respected, even by other brand owners.

If you wear glasses, you have everything you need to clean your lenes (so I do anyway)

I don't do anything with my sensor but run the 'shake' feature on the K-x once a week...

For lenses I use the rear cap and carry a microfibre cloth...
