Just prior to Valle, I managed to screw up my courage and do a wet cleaning on both cameras using the Copper Hill "Eclipse" solution and foam pads wrapped on a swab that's made for APS-H - sized sensors.  They make "handles" for APS-C, APS-H or Full Frame.

- Blast of Rocket Blower
- Visual inspection with a magnifier I have from the SensorKleen  Pen set (wasn't gong to swab them if they really didn't need it)
- A few drops of Eclipse, one pass (gets the upper 5/8 of the sensor)
- Flip the swab around and do a second pass to get the remaining portion
- Let it dry for a beat or two
- Re-inspect with loupe
- Good to go!

Only had one or two spots that, if there wasn't so much clear sky, would never have shown up.

Been cleaning my sensors using the Copperhill method since I was shooting a Rebel. Easy and effective.
