Is it cool to try and clean off the actua infraredl sensor in the Radio shack motion detector, or should I use compressed air or something else??

Hi realtree,
The PIR sensor elements are "hermetically sealed" and can withstand most cleaning solvents.  The IR windows are coated silicon and are also solvent resistant.
You can clean the sensors with the same 99% isopropyl alcohol used to clean the rest of the board.

Don't submerge the boards or sensors in the alcohol - just rinse them off with a toothbrush or small paintbrush.
