   On Second thought, There is some stuff called LPS-1 that will lubricate
   and clean electronic parts.  It works miracles on burnt and otherwise
   bad potentiometers.  It is hard to find but it can be had in hardware
   stores and electronic supply places.  Be sure to get LPS-1.  I think
   that LPS-2 or LPS-3 is an anti-corrosion coating.  Gooie and waxy, not
   what you want.

LPS-1 ??? Are you sure? I thought it was strictly a light lubricant (and
cleaner, a la WD-40; and in fact a recommended alternate to WD-40)! With
-2 and -3 being in essence heavier "grades" on the same theme

Certainly, there are various "electronic" cleaners (and lubricants) which
can work miracles on dirty/noisy pots/switches/et al.
