Dust-Aid Platinum Light Wand Cleaning Kit is a cleaning tool for removing dry, loose dust-particles from DSLR sensors. Featuring a built in light which makes it much easier to see your camera’s sensor.
The Dust-Aid Platinum Light Wand Kit has been tested on all sensor types including those cameras with internal self-cleaning mechanisms. It is also safe to use on coated and uncoated sensor filters.
How to use it:
The kit includes a wand with a silicone pad at one end and 6 cleaning strips. To use the Platinum simply peel the backing paper off one of the cleaning strips, then press the silicone pad onto the cleaning strip. Doing this cleans the silicone pad, once the pad has been cleared of dust, it is ready to use.
You then use the silicone pad to remove loose dust from your sensor, the built in light illuminates the sensor making it much easier to see what you’re doing.
The silicone is naturally tacky, so dust adheres to it. Just gently press the pad down on your sensor and lift. Don’t rub or drag the pad, just a simple press and lift. When you have used all 6 cleaning strips you can purchase a replacement pack of 12 strips to replenish your kit. You can find them here.
1 cleaning strip = 1 full clean.

PLEASE NOTE: The cleaning adhesive used to clean the Platinum’s silicone has been developed and tested not to transfer any of the adhesive to the silicone.
Dust-Aid Platinum is designed to remove dry dust particles only. Any contamination remaining should be removed by a wet cleaning system such as the Dust-Wand Kit or swabs and fluid.
It is important that all dry dust is removed from the sensor filter prior to using any wet cleaning method.
