just make sure not to apply the liquid directly onto the lens.

apply it onto the cloth (or whatever you're gonna use to wipe it), then use the cloth and wipe the lens.

Well, it's the same old question that you should ask yourself.

If you're worried about it, then you should be getting some expensive cleaning solution. Though erm, the liquid I use to clean my DSLR sensor costs like $5 per bottle. :dunno: It's just how much of a risk-taker you are, if you ask then I think you best pay the bucks to buy some of peace of mind, no offense meant seriously.

cheap stuff doesn't necessarily mean it's bad, and vice-versa.

just be smart on what u do with whatever u have.

Why is this so ah? is it because the liquid will slip inside the lens?

Cameras are not waterproof. Liquid can get in by many ways, one of which is through lens unit.

Do remember to blow off any dust or sand that maybe on the lens before wiping the lens. Do not use your mouth to blow! :nono: Get a dust blower. Some people use cotton buds to cleans P&S lenses, since they are so tiny. Get the low lint ones.
