How do I clean the head on DeskJet 1000

[ Edited ]

Hello!

I have a DeskJet 1000 printer.Sometimes I get vertical lines on the printed image (dirty head) however I can't find the head cleaning tool. How do I perform head cleaning on this printer? I could not find anything in the menus.

I use Windows XP professional.
