Cleaning Cartridge

Has any one ever used these to clean the print heads on a printer and if you have, did they work.

The reason I'm asking is that I happened to see them on a site ( ink.co.uk) it's just that the printer I've got, a cannon pixma ip5000 has started to act a bit tempermental and I wondered if these might help.

The black ink has bled into the yellow tank and contaminated the yellow which is more a muddy colour now and before putting new cartridges in I think it needs a good clean.

Any suggestions will be appreciated apart from rude ones.

I had some trouble with my ip1000 after not using it for a long period.

I was recommended to soak the heads in a shallow amount of methylated spirit overnight and then to dry with a soft cloth. I did this and it cured my problem.
