Cleaning sensor?

Ok, have had my camera 3 days, been as careful as I can. Haven't left the sensor exposed for more then a second or 2. But I've still collected dust on it, and it appears there are 2 small smudges. Bought a hurricane blower, but looks like one spec is not going away. What would you recommend for cleaning the sensor? I have lint free towelettes, made for cleaning my eyeglasses. Designed to not scratch the coatings on the. I'm assuming that isn't the best route to go. Should I get a kit of some sort? Recommendations?

Thanks,
Jeff

Re: Cleaning sensor?

We already discussed this topic about the FS100. I'ts pretty easy to get particles on the sensor due to the small flange distance. You will find your answer here:

You are correct, and I feel stupid for posting, i remember reading that thread. I just ordered the cleaning kit you recommended in your post there. My assistant manager, at the restaurant I run, use to run a portrait studio, and spent 3 years cleaning the camera sensors there. He's going to clean mine for me, once the cleaning kit arrives. Of course the the spots were only visible when I was stopped down. The Genus fader ND is next on my list, on payday.
