The term Cleaning Fleece is used in the context of ITKnowledge for the inner linings of floppy disks and for antistatic cleaning cloths. In the case of floppy disks, the inner lining of the floppy disk sleeves consisted of cleaning fleeces made of antistatic material. The purpose of these cleaning fleeces was to absorb dust particles from the floppy disk and to increase its sliding properties during disk rotation.
Cleaning fleeces are used wherever dust particles are bound to surfaces by electrostatic charging. This is the case, for example, with display screens.
