Nice post, Mark

This is the kind of approach to dust that makes sense. You may not need all of these tools, but the idea is to start with basic tools.

Lenrentals.com has a video about sensor cleaning on YouTube

You don't need the effort LensRentals shows on every cleaning. Start small and escalate cleaning as needed. A blower is part of routine maintenance and resolves most dust issues. Brushes are the next level to remove dust. There are a couple of options for cleaning brushes. With a loupe so you can see dust, a stamp is the next level. And it's only after these steps that you really need a wet cleaning. LensRentals only uses a wet cleaning for about 5% of their cleanings.

Just like you build a lens kit, you add cleaning tools over time and based on need. Everyone should have a good blower. The Arctic Butterfly is good brush tool. With those two tools you can probably go a very long time without any other tools.
