“I am a retired engineer and have been frustrated with the high price of contact cleaner.
Well I found that automotive MAP sensor cleaner will clean contacts, motor armature’s, track, switches, etc…
It costs about 1/4 of regular contact cleaner and works just as well and will not damage many plastics.
It also is a good de-greaser.
Like any cleaner, you should avoid skin contact and inhaling the fumes.
It is wonderful for cleaning potentiometers that are noisy or spotty.
I hope this is a helpful hint.
Some pics of the layout HO – I am working on…
