Persistence is the key... I use several pec-pad to do this. I stop only when no gunk is visible at f/22.

Zero tolerance for me. I maed my own spat-u-swab using this method:
http://www.pbase.com/copperhill/ccd_cleaning
I bough small spatulas for P48 in Cooks Exchange in Rockwell.
Much better for me to be able to clean the sensor when I need to instead of having to wait.

Check out http://www.visibledust.com/sensor_cleaning_products.html
They sensor brushes are pricey, but the fan-type brushes allow you to clean with just using a blower and the brush itself instead of compressed air. So, cleaning when "in the field" is possible.

Here's an aritcle on cleaning by Thom Hogan:

Dan,

Your 350D is quite new right? Nagkaroon agad ng dust sa sensor?

Ahhh, okay. I've read in the manual not to change lens when the power is on so as to minimize the chances of dust getting into the sensor. Pag naka-on kasi, the shutter is open, thus, exposing the sensor. Might this be one of the reasons why Dan's 350D got its sensor dusts?

Huh? Di naman bubukas ang shutter hanggat di mo pine-press yung shutter button ah.

Sabi ni wildswan sa akin nun,  baka galing sa oil ng shutter. Kasi since bago pa nun yung cam ko, medyo marami pa daw yung mga oil or grease nung mga moving parts ng shutter.

I am sorry.

It costs almost a new unit. You should have waited for me.

Again I am sorry.

Pero baka di naman scratch yan, smudge lang. Verify mo. Have it checked by a technician.

I used the blower to first blow out any big particles then used a sensor swab with eclipse soultion to clean it, I think my problem was I used the same swab once too many times. Hirap kasi di nawawala lahat ng dust kaya ayan sa kaka punas may faint scratch

Sometimes if you use too much of the solution, you leave a wet mark or smudge. Hoepfully that's the case this time.

I know how you feel. But since it doesn't come out in regular photos, just keep shooting and don't think about it!

I don't tolerate  dust in my sensor. I bring a blower and a Copperhill kit in the field. When I see dust in my pics (normally churned up by the flapping mirror during 5 or 8.xx fps bursts), I try to clean it with a blower. If the dust is stubborn, I resort to wet-cleaning. I do this inside the car of course. I also do regular monthly wet cleaning at home to remove small dust particles that are resistant to blower.
