I tried it out. Seems to work great. Look, Ma, no more crap in the pictures.
If you look closely you can still see some very faint spots that I may have caused by trying to clean the sensor the wrong way, but nothing as obvious as the crap I was getting before.
Much improved and well within the the standards that my heinously amateurish photography skills require.
Thanks for the advice guys. Hopefully, next time I have an issue, I’ll think to ask you about it first because just striking out on my own ignorant path.
