A word of warning! The cleaners for glasses can be quite aggressive owing to the muck which they can accumalate, they are made from plain old glass and do not have the coatings which most camera lenses have, it can be very easy to remove the coating if you're not careful, The lens will look nice and clean afterwards, and you probably won't even notice it's gone!
The man who did my sensor clean used lighter fluid - yes the petrol one, which scared me as solvents aren't supposed to come near the glass, but he assures me it's safe, not only for lenses but sensors too.
