VHS Tape Cleaner Question

So one from way back in the 80's for you guys.

Buddy of mine has a need to clean VHS tapes. He has a Geneva PF742 VHS tape cleaner but there is apparently a consumable part some kind of soft foam or something that actually comes in contact with the tape.

If you haven't figured it out already I don't know squat about these things. BUT I figure someone here must.

He's trying to find the parts, information on the material the pads were made of, or someone that can make them.

What he described to me as needing sounds like these things

Does this Geneva gizmo clean the head or the tape itself?

The tape in the cassette, not the head on the VHS Player.

I worked at a rental store back in the 80s. The "cleaner" was inside a dummy VHS tape that you would "play". The pads would wear out, and need to be replaced from time to time.

But, you could do the exact same thing with some alcohol and cotton swabs. Its just harder to reach the tape heads.

He needs to clean the tape in the cassette though. Not the heads on the machine.

I understand the concept, but I don't think I ever saw one of those. Even google kept showing me head cleaners.

Yeah it's a bit strange. I'd never heard of it either but figured someone here might have.
