anyone ever hear of or use these? it's a vacuum swab deal...also i remember a while back someone posted about dust aid ...if anyone knows how it works i'd appreciate the info...trying to make this as few steps as possible for the husband...Thanks for any and all input.( checked out copperhill but that seems like more steps so i was hoping for a simple but good method)

I've heard of it - but don't know anything about it.

The pec pads from copperhill were super easy. Took me a while because my sensor was pretty cruddy - but it wasn't hard to do at all.

husband hates to read directions so i'm trying to make it as painless for him as possible. that's why i thought the dust aid looked good, it's put the pad on the wand and touch it 4 times to the sensor...i figured even i could talk him through that one:lmao: although it looks like the most stuff to do is actually pre cleaning...i just have to bite the bullet since the sky looks like it is filled with volcanic ash ...and no volcanoes in NE Ohio i know of:rotfl:

I used the dust-aid on my Canada trip. The cost/use is pretty high, but they are quick and effective.

Dust-Aid seems to work but it scares me, it feels like it *really* sticks to the sensor. Another issue may arise when some semi-wet yogg is on the sensor, then the Dust-Aid may just spread it like the brush did, or copy it every time the wand is moved.

Copperhill seems to be the most likely to do a good job on all types of specks.

So is that the consensus now? That copperhill tends to be the best way to clean the sensor?? I've been watching this thread because I'm looking to get a sensor cleaner too and I just want to make sure I get the right kind!! :thumbsup2
