There're times when the filters get quite dirty and using a lint-free cloth doesn't seem to remove all the markings despite repeated ckeaning. Would the Eclipse Optic Cleaning System from Cathay Photo be better than those that come bundled with a blower and some lens paper? Are there any other cleaning solution to recommend?

Eclipse Optic Cleaning System
Eclipse lens cleaner is the highest purity lens cleaner available.It contains no silicones and dries as quickly as it can be applied leaving absolutely no residue.

Eclipse is available in a 59ml.(2fl.oz.) dropper bottle with 10 PEC*PAD Photo Wipes.

*me scratch head* :what: whisky/brandy - thats a new one to me. I guess can always blame blurry/shake photos on the alcohol *hic*
