I have been using Methyl Hydrate to clean tape heads on my open reel and cassette machines. Does anyone know if it might leave a residue?

If this is pure methanol then it should not leave a residue, but you should read the label. It is possible that there are other things added to it.

I wonder if methanol might be too strong a solvent though. I seem to remeber there being products that were especially for cleaning heads. I also remember a special tape that you run through the deck that cleans the heads.
