Hi,

Sorry, not really sure where a question like this fit, so I will try it here. Please move if incorrect.

I purchased this kit last year to clear stubborn spots off of my D7000 sensor.

http://www.copperhillimages.com/shopping/pgm-more_information.php?id=40&=SID#MOREINFO

After using about 3 of the swabs, I was able to get it clean. Now the spots are back. I used 2 swabs and I'm left with streaks now from the spots. I believe I used enough pressure and the proper amount of eclipse fluid. So, have a few questions-

1.) What are the Pec-Pads for? Are they the same material used on the swabs, can you replace the paper on the plastic swabs with this? I would hate to not be able to reuse them. Looking for somewhere that sells replacement paper swabs.

Ad says:
"PEC*PAD is not recommended for cleaning the CCD. It is not the same material used in the Sensor Cleaning Swabs. PSI does not approve or warranty the CCD or any camera part from any damage caused by using non approved products."

2.) Is it normal to have to use 3 or so swabs to get a sensor really clean? The blower works if there is light dust, but not for these spots.

Thanks!
