Sensor Dust

From those of you who own a dslr what has been the quickest and most
effective way to remove dust from your sensor out in the field and at
home from your personal experience?

I bought a sensor cleaning kit at the local camera store.
Usually I clean the sensor before a trip....I would never clean the sensor in the field....probably just make it worse.

I do what windwalker alludes to in his post. Maybe not as often as I should though :retard: . If you know you've got some dust on the sensor, you can try to avoid stopping down - the higher f-stop you go the greater the dust specs will show; usually when my sensor is really dirty the dust will start showing past f14 or f16.
