I realised that there are several dust spots on my camera's sensor. I cleaned the lenses so that's good now. However I was wondering, how exactly would you clean the sensor of the camera. Is there another way than using cotton swabs?

You've got to use either Sensor Swabs or Digi-pads, along with some eclipse fluid.
This is simple enough in principle, but you may need to do it more than once. It's worth buying some pec-pads too as you can then reuse the swab sticks. Treat the sensor face (actually the filter face) like you would any piece of glass and you'll be okay.
