For use on a home amp. Deoxit looks good but rat shack only has very small can and big $.
Rat Shack brand OK? Is CRC any good?
(tried searching-worthless)
Thanks,
Bob

Any spray contact cleaner should get the job done. You might want to make sure the can comes with a tube to stick on the nozzle. Otherwise just buy the best value.

WD-40, used by pros for years as contact cleaner (*and scracty pots). Dont laugh till you have tried it. I was skeptical because I thought its non-evap and oily would cause dust to accumulate. I was wrong, works great.

Yes CRC is good.

WD40 is conductive. That's a bad thing. Some say the rat shack stuff leaves a residue.

Worst idea ever, you have flaky pros.

I also like Rawn superlube, in fact the rawn products are the only thing I have found to reliably rejuvenate Soundcraft and Amek switches (damn harman), unfortunately TefRawn is no longer made.

Thanks Chad. Getting some noise out of ML 20.6. Thought I'd try some cleaner before packing it off to TX. Hope it's not needing new caps.

I read recently that WD40 was conductive hence didn't want it near a circuit board.

Hosa actually packages Deoxit now and Hosa products can be found in many music stores (mi/pro)
