Cautionary notes
  • The VisibleDust sensor cleaning solutions and swabs are calibrated to work together to produce optimal and safe results. Please do not use alternative solutions with this swab. A simple grain of quartz which is found in cheaper solutions is enough to produce an expensive scratch on the low pass filter. These solutions are manufactured to the highest standard of quality that is practiced in pharmaceutical industries.

  • VisibleDust solutions are calibrated for normal evaporative rates:
    To keep the swab moist at all time to reduce the risk of scratches
    To increase the cleaning power, less swabbing more economical
    To reduce friction by being moist all times during swabbing

  • The potential risk of fast evaporative solutions used as sensor cleaning is the following:
    An increase in the risk of damage and stress to sensor coating by using premature dry swab
    A great reduction in cleaning power by shortening the contact time between contaminants and solution due to the increased evaporation rate of the solution
    An increase in friction by using a premature drying swab, resulting in static charge build up leading to an even greater dust accumulation on the sensor

  • These cleaning liquids are intended to be placed on the swab first, so the concern for liquid seeping through the sensor is not valid or accurate. On the other hand, the disadvantages of a generic brand for fast evaporative liquid used for sensor cleaning may in fact cause damage to the sensor by requiring repeat swabbing and is not recommended.

          Comments about VisibleDust EZ Sensor Cleaning Kit with Smear Away and 4 Green 1.6x Vswabs:

          I bought this based on good reviews as I had a pretty dirty sensor, so I figured I was going for one of the best. I used exactly as directed (the directions are ridiculously simple-almost too much so-for instance, they dont tell you if it is 'safe' to swab more than once across your sensor with one swab, like go back and forth to clean it, etc).... And there ended up being so much liquid on my swab (yes I was careful) that it left streaks behind on my sensor; pulling out a brand new swab when they are relatively expensive didnt make much sense, so I grabbed my compressed air can and dried it off. That got rid of the liquid, but I think more dust entered in the process. Unfortunately, now I had spots I had never seen before. Long story short, it took me a few extra swabs I had from snother brand name kit I had, before I finally got my sensor clean. It took at least 5 tries, and most of them made it worse than it was originally until the very last one when I finally got lucky. And had a learning curve as well in between me and the first try-I figured it out, finally, but it was my solution, not one recommended by this kit. Therefore, I am not so sure about this . Better instructions about what not to do would have been super helpful, etc
          Also, the liquid bottle is so tiny that it would be very easy to lose. And on that note there should be a case to put this kit in when you take the stuff out of the original shipping/retail package. Needs improvement!

              it works flawlessly but I gave 4 stars because I struggled to find exact instructions... I am listing exact instructions heretake out the swab... put one end into bottle... tilt bottle until solution touches swab end. swab will quickly absorb solution (about a second)... remove once solution reaches about 50-60% of top edge..repeat with other corner without much delay... I will explain what happens if you wait significantly...now, just swipe on sensor filter with firm hand once. tilt other side and swipe again once...remove.if it is not clean then you have to use other swab. I had pretty big black oil spot that I couldn't clear with blower or brush... I got rid of it easily.now... I was happy and thought why not clean my ancient fa mirror... why not? I had got it and it had bad cushion marks on mirror...bad move... since I waited for about a minute... I noticed it did clean the roughy gummy marks but left a heavy smear...I tried to swipe more thinking not to waste more swabs... but smear kept becoming more and more..needless to say I had to use another swab to clear smear. duh... that camera was hardly [$].. but now mirror is spotless clean.
