I have done some research and it appears that PEC-12 and pads are favored by many people. Kodak used to make a cleaner, but it may be discontinued. There is also one made by Edwal.

Obviously my prime concern is for the health of my negatives and I am curious to hear if there are any negative long term effects from the chemical contained in a cleaner such as PEC-12 etc.

Thanks in advance.
In my experience the Kodak cleaner just removes finger prints and other oily residue. Dust and water spots are frequently permanent damage.
