my G1 has a small dust spec ... the auto clean won't remove or even my Giotto blower fails to dislodge it .. its not serious but would like to clean it.
Any simple suggestions

Copperhill has all you need and you need it.
If ya have the extra cash, get the sensor loupe.
It puts light on the subject!

The little vacuum is cool also.

I've used a LensPen SensorKlean which has worked perfectly. Every method has it's pros and cons and you'll likely get multiple recommendations for how to do it. Some don't like wet cleaning because of possible residue and streaking. Some don't like dry cleaning because of possible scratching.

Good Luck!!!

Would it be cost prohibitive to have one of us send it over to you?

Sensor clean success !!!!

Thanks to Streetshooter's (Don's) advice

Received my copperhillimages.com cleaning kit for m43 and the illuminated
magnifier.
Using the 14mm sensorswipe wrapped with the PecPad and with 2 drops of the cleaning fluid was able to clean both my G1 and GF1.
