Head cleaners really don't help much. Pretty much smear, rub or otherwise squish gunk against heads. The dry cleaners are about as useless as a tape. The wet cleaners (come wet, NOT one you add wet to), are marginally better, but limited lifespan (maybe harder to find now, too).
Personally, I take my machines apart, and use denatured alcohol or 70% isopropyl alcohol, with a non-cotton swab made for cleaning delicate items (like electronics). Just hold one barely damp against the head, rotate.
