For example:

def formatList(seq):
    seen = set()
    seen_add = seen.add
    return [ x for x in seq if not (x in seen or seen_add(x))]

There are loads of topics about this on stackoverflow and Google. This example is taken from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/480214/how-do-you-remove-duplicates-from-a-list-in-python-whilst-preserving-order and also keeps the order of your list!


A second option could be to create a second list, which only contains the clean values. In case you would like to keep both lists.

for i in mylist:
     if i not in newlist:

list = set(list) is this correct?

I usually used list_wo_no_duplicate = list(set(list_with_ducplicates))  to remove duplicates.  Although I think there is no harm for not setting the variable to list again as set in most cases.
