Lens too deep to clean!

I bought a laser from BudgetGadgets and there is a lid on top of the lens (not removable as far as I know), making it to deep to clean with a lens pen or micro-fibre cloth.
Any suggestions?

if you can't get to the lens you can't clean it

you need to figure out how to get to the lens!
Pictures help also

Wait until you get a better laser to worry about cleaning it? Cleaning lenses on low end lasers aren't going to help them much Honestly. Why do you need to clean the lens so bad? On a low mW laser your not going to see any big difference in power output, and if you don't own a LPM you'll never notice it unless it's a unfocused dot your looking at and your trying to take specs away. and once again that would be almost pointless....

I suggested this before. If its caked on stuff you can literally tear pieces of cotton with high grade lens cleaner on it and shove it in there... use a tooth pick and break off the too to give the cotton aomthing to hold on to. Then slowly spin the cotton around. When you think its good just pick it out with your fingers. Usually works for cleaning my wicked llasers executive which believe me... its a pain to clean.

You can also try compressed air but I'd be afraid of sort hitting and scratching the lenses.

That's my suggestion. Hope you get it nice and clean!

Thanks for your suggestions!
I have a lens pen and air blower on the way to me. I will try cleaning the lens with those tools when they arrive.
The laser is a $118 200mw Focusable Green Laser from BudgetGadgets.

Dang, $118 for a budgetgadgets laser? i don't think they have a very good rep, i wouldn't think it's 200mW anyways
