LTO tape drive cleaning schedule
If any of you out there are still using tape drives (we are, but in conjuction with online and NAS backup storage too) how often do you use a cleaning tape on them?
Currently our LTO drive gets the cleaning tape every Monday morning and the drive does 5 backups a week plus a Saturday monthly. Do I need to be cleaning it every week? I only ask as I've got to order a new cleaning tape and I don't want to order / use more than I really have to.

Apparently you're only supposed to put the cleaning tape in when the "clean" light comes on.
