Need Help: Tape Head Cleaner

Hi...
Please advise; I feel this is a silly question, but just to be safe...does any mini DV tape head cleaner work for any mini DV camera? I have a Sony tape head cleaner tape and a Canon GL2 camera...I'm assuming that using the brands together don't matter, but I know there's a debate about using certain brands of actual DV tape in certain brands of cameras, so I just wanted to check.
Thanks so much...

Use the dry head cleaning tape not the "wet" one.

Which ones are dry, which ones aren't!?

The sony are wet, right?

As for me, I have a JVC tape head cleaner.

Would somebody know if it has dry heads?

It says on the package whether it's wet or dry.
