No body mentioned yacht varnish, after giving the sensor a good old clean with any or all of the above options, a few coats of yacht varnish will keep most types of dust off....and......you can confidently change lense in a rowing boat in a storm knowing your precious sensor is safe,
for artistic effects Sadolin do a wonderful range of tinted colours.

I find a fairly well-worn wood chisel excellent for removing the most stubborn bits of crud from the sensor in my camera.

Working in the motor trade, I find some rubbing compound is great. However, for the really stubborn dirt, I find alloy wheel cleaner which is mildly acidic fabulous.

Also, a quick squirt of brake cleaner works a treat on lenses!
