As title....got some stuff stuck on the thing and want rid of it. Where to start
Get a rocket blower initially and see if a good few puffs will get rid, if not then you might have to try some sensor cleaning fluid and a soft brush.......available in kits I believe.
Rocket blower for me too. I've only had to do it once so far (I'm v careful) and it worked fine. You can borrow mine if you like.

I have a rocket blower but it didnt seem to do the job so i got the AB and although its very expensive for what it is its easy to use and quick. I tend to take it out with me now if i take more than one lens
If you don't want the 5D any more, I'll take it off your hands
I've got a pack containing sensor swabs, pec-pads, fluid, and other bits - the swab is the perfect size for the 5D (size 3, apparently) although it's taken a few attempts to remove most of the bits - a blower made no difference whatsoever.
The kit was bought in a camera shop in Swindon, but the website shown on the packaging is: http://www.cameraclean.co.uk
I blew mine off with my breath then the condesation took a while to clear. I won't be doing that again.
