Default Dirty Lense?

So i bought this laser around December of 2010:

New cute pocket Green laser 100mW /adjustable [OLCGL100] - $71.99 : Welcome to O-Like.com, Your source for laser products

Worked great, and still does, except this is what the dot looks like...
The actual dot itself is the normal size, but its really fuzzy everywhere.

And yes i researched other threads, but the only reason i started a new one is because my laser is built so that i cant take it apart. the lens is pretty much untouchable. I tried squeezing a Q-tip in there to clean it up, but apparently that's a bad idea? ill take a picture of the laser up close too.

Any suggestions? I miss my laser D:

try a can of air duster. but make sure it is in the correct position to not let any of the liquid out. if that doesnt work, i'm afraid you will have to get creative.

Thanks for the reply, but i have already tried that :/

I've seen other threads with people have the same laser and dissembled it to the lens... i have no idea how though.

Actually, that laser can be seperated in to three parts (Not including the tailcap). However, quite a bit of force is required to unscrew it.

edit 1: oh lol, just unscrewed it, thank you!

edit 2: Cleaned the lens with a Q tip and works fine now, thanks for replies!
