Used in the audio electronics world. Looks like a good product for cleaning a VAM or any potentiometer wiper element. This is from the Crutchfield website for 18 dollars a can.
If it was easy everybody would do it.

It works great, I’ve used it for many years in electronics. That red one has a higher cleaning aggressiveness so if the contacts are very dirty/bad that would be the one to use.
They also have a “gold” type which is slightly better for maintenance of pots etc. since it has less cleaner agent.
Parts express has these products and a great vendor I’ve used for years as well.

As mentioned, used in stereo parts and seems to work very well on potentionmeters and contacts.
