YA but they ADDED WEAR to tapes!! (By slamming them home @ full speed)
I also think it’s weird that so many people can be shown something so simple yet important and they just ignore it.
It does seem to explain a lot right now, though.

Made for a nice prank over a decade ago, I'm sure.

Not being a renter of tapes I would leave my tapes in neatly wound played condition and then rewind them before playing. Avoided edge damage.
No. I should buy one. I used to work in video stores and we sold them and used them for lazy customer unrewinded video returns. I have a nice used functional DVD/VCR combo and I want the VHS portion to last longer and not wear out so fast as far as the gears in doing less FFWD and RWD functions.
3M had a cleaning cassette that was actually decent. Play it until the message appeared then stop.
Sorry, but no. The fibers of a cotton swab would catch in the head gap, and alcohol is a bad idea, especially rubbing alcohol which has oil in it.
I use chamois swab sticks and a carefully hoarded bottle of tricloriflorithane.
This is what I use to clean the heads on my VHS, S-VHS, U-Matic, Beta and multistandard decks.
