This review is from: DustAid Platinum DSLR Sensor Cleaner (Camera)
I first learnt about this product which watching a tutorial by LensRentals. They do a lot of sensor cleaning and seem to have a process down that works well. After using the Giottos rocket air blaster, and taking a test picture, there was some improvements, but problem spots were present. The DustAid did a superb job is getting out 90% of the spots in my first run (I purposefully was conservative around the edges the first time, was scared of getting lube on the silicon and smearing it on the sensor). After a couple more test pictures and DustAid cleanings, my sensor was 98% spot free. The few spots that were there were very small, and seen only at an aperture of 32 (which should not be the aperture one uses for the majority of photography applications). The product is excellent and deserves a 5 star rating. I have seen many professional cleaners unable to achieve this level of cleaning. My local shop wanted to charge me $100 to clean the sensor.

Advice: DO NOT touch the bottom of the product, finger oil will require a wet clean to remove from the sensor.
Take test pictures (white backround, high aperture, focus to infinity, process with high contrast) to identify problem zones. Dust first with a manual rocket air blaster or foot controlled air blaster (never compressed air, I know many people have done so without issue, but virtually every expert advises not to [high pressure, contamination, etc.]). Press straight down, evenly, and lift up evenly. Do not press hard, some dust on a sensor is better than a broken sensor.
