Lenspen Small Enough?

I have been trying to buy a lenspen to clean my laser but I have been finding it difficult to tell which can fit into the tiny aperture hole and actually reach the lens. Can someone recommend me a lenspen that you are sure is able to do this? I would prefer to keep it under $15.

I bought the real LensPen for this purpose not too long ago. Unfortunately the cleaning head is approximately 17mm in diameter, far too large to work on any laser pointer's aperture. It does work great to clean laser goggles though (which is how I use it now).

They're way to big to fit but it does work on the Rifle host from Lazerer if you take the top part off.

I don't like the lenspen for lasers. I use cotton swabs and alcohol for that.
The lens pen sometimes leaves a small amount of graphite residue.
They are great for camera lenses, though.

What kind of cleaning alcohol do you use?

Well all the other ways I use have a very small success rate in getting it clean. Lenspens are what I have seen most recommended in general on this forum.
