Im a part-time photographer also and don't use any liquids/chemicals to clean lens.. big no no no.
Use a bulb blower to remove dust particles, a turkey baster will work just fine.
There is nothing that will get on the lens that will require a liquid/chemical cleaning agent unless you smoke heavily. Even then, it would take a good a bit of time to accumulate enough to degrade image quality.
If your image isn't degraded, there isn't really a point to it anyway, IMO.
The more you clean, the greater the chance you have of damaging the lens.
