Visible Dust Inc.

Anyone try a Visible Dust kit?

I bought one and tried it out. I put 2 drops of fluid on a swipe, waited a few seconds and wiped my sensor. Some of the liquid stayed behind on the sensor and then evaporated really fast. It left behind what looks like waterspots and now my pics look like crap. I tried contacting the company for help, but they won't answer.

Any help anyone?? Am I doing something wrong??

I thought you had to swipe it, then flip the swipe and wipe it again, and then wipe it again with a dry one.

But I've never had to clean one of my sensors. :-\

Retry using one drop. Pause after applying drop for 10 seconds. Don't forget to wipe with both sides but in the same direction. Follow with one dry swipe.
