Default Floppy Cleaner

Hello:

Can somebody help me find a 3.5" floppy drive cleaner? And how does it work? I need it for an old piano that seems it needs a clean.

5 used to have a cleaner. I don’t know if 3 has one.
Use your vacuum. Or maybe a long swab with alcohol on it.

I'm confused though. Why do you need a floppy drive cleaner for an "old piano"?

It says "This item is not available to buy online"

The piano plays songs by inserting music in a floppy, but it's not reading them.

Here's one on Amazon: Kensington Disk Drive Cleaning Kit 3.5in


You could just buy a new Floppy Drive. It's cheaper than the cleaning kit.
