dSLR sensor cleaning

So, I noticed dots in the sky of some of my recent photos. Research pointed to dust on my camera’s sensor. I went to the local camera shop and paid a good chunk of money on something they recommended. It was a kit that included a little vacuum and some wet/dry swabs. After vacuuming like crazy (following the instructions of using short bursts) and following up with the wet/dry swabs, my sensor is now dirtier than when I started. Is this thing actually supposed to work? I was shining a flashlight in there while vacuuming and I could see dust particles sitting on the sensor and I think they were actually taunting the vacuum and refusing to move. *sigh*

So then I tried a cheap little bulb blower. I had better luck, but there’s still dust in there. I’m not happy. Not happy at all.
