Wet cleaning solution for sensor cleaning

Need some help on this.

I brought lenspen SensorKlear sometime ago. It worked easily but not so effective.

I still have 3 very small and stubborn spots to get rid off, and I'm considering wet cleaning solution.

If anyone had good experience with wet cleaning solution, please recommend me the:
a) Brand
b) The place you purchased
c) Price range

ST did mention Eclipse and Pecpads before. I found the links at shahinki, but any idea where can I source them within Klang Valley?

One thing that I have noticed: these 3 spots only become a nuisance when I'm shooting in macro, when using narrow apertures.

I've been struggling with dust on sensor as well. I've tried using blower but yet no luck to get rid of it. As I was surfing internet and I found a site gave me quite an idea, simple however quite dangerous; art brush. I use a new flat head art brush which is very soft. Then I just use my finger rapidly hitting the tip of the brush under a spot light to see the amount of dust lift off from the brush. Then, very very very gently I run the brush across the sensor and amazingly, most of the dust gone! But this has to be done carefully assist under bright light and practically no aircond or fan turned on.

Thanks for sharing your experience, raymondevil.

I have bought the wet cleaning solution during the recent KLPAF, but I have yet to try it out.

Will be quite some time later, as I have found out that some of the stubborn dusts actually resides deep within my lens.

I think it's pretty normal to have dust inside lens and I think it won't affect any of your images? As far as I've experienced on my 18-200mm, I manage to open up the front element but not deep inside... if you manage to do it, please share with me.

It only affects my images when I stop the lens down to f/16 during macro mode. The dust spots are not observable when I shoot wide open at f/2.8.
The lens in question is the 105mm VR.

I shall send this lens to Nikon to be serviced, but not that soon.
The dusts are still tolerable, I can clone them out during post-processing.
