How to clean sensor using Smear Away solution and sensor cleaning swabs Vswab MXD-100 Green from VisibleDust

  • Refer to your camera’s manual on how to expose the sensor.
  • Brush the sensor surface with Arctic Butterfly® Sensor Brush®. Alternatively, use Zee Pro™ or Zeeion® anti-static bulb blower to remove dry contaminants.
  • Add 2-4 drops of Smear Away™ on the fabric of MXD-100 Green Vswab™.
  • Wait to allow for even saturation of the swab (can be calibrated from a few seconds to 30 seconds depending on environmental conditions). Do not allow the swab to dry out.
  • Using Vswab™, wipe across the sensor with gentle pressure once, in a single smooth motion. If it is necessary, turn Vswab over on the other side and repeat. Ensure you wipe in the same direction both times.
  • Discard the swab after a single use.
  • Allow the sensor to dry out completely. If needed, use the Arctic Butterfly® Sensor Brush® for complete cleaning.
  • Proceed with checking the image.
  • Repeat if necessary.
