Threw the camera back together today, after cleaning the filter as best as I possibly could with my breath and a microfiber cloth. Took some pics with the camera and I see no distortion or dust or smuges in my pics, so I guess I did an ok job.
For future reference when modding your own camera: Absolutely DO NOT touch the filters, with anything. Had I been smart I would have let the silicon completely dry before even attempting to wipe with a cloth, but once I did I had no choice but to get the silicon smear off as quickly as possible.

Also, like you did, I always wear gloves. I use dust free nitrile gloves and they work great.
