 As Fred says, it is much better to clean these properly.
Cleaning disk are just a patch for hard to reach drives and
shouldn't be use when you can get to the heads.
 It is something like pouring STP in an engine to
fix leaky valve seals. It doesn't really fix it but
it seems to go away for a while.
