Disclosed is a Reverse Single Blade Hybrid (RSBH) cleaner apparatus having a Single Blade Hybrid (SBH) cleaner wherein the order of the cleaning brush and blade is reversed in configuration. An advantage of this approach is that it allows for a long life for the blade/brush combination. The primary function of the brush is to clean toner streaks left by the blade when localized blade edge defects occur. This allows a blade to run long after the first streak develops.
