Suggestions for sensor cleaners?

In the order of the "stickiness" of the dust:
First, try something like the Rocket blower or (I use) a co2 blower from American Recorder

Second: brush from  Visible Dust, see reivew on this site.

Third, if all else fails, the Copperhill technique

Petteri Sulonen's article on finding a brush to clean your sensor.

Sensor sweeper from the copper hill guy.

Sensorswipe from copperhill

Sensor swabs which are way nice but expensive.

I use Petteri's method (cheap version of visible dusts) and a version of copperhill (using a chopped credit card).  The rocket blower rarely works for me which I blame on my ^#&#%#$% cats filling every bit of air in my house with fur.

Hi All,

I've got a Canon 20D and D60, both of which seemed to be plagued by sensor dust which is resistant to using air from a squeeze bulb.  Any recommendations on sensor swabs to clean the sensors with?  I've seen ads for both wet and dry types, and have no clue which would be best for the problem.

Thanks!
Bill
