WD-40 Specialist Contact Cleaner 400ml
Scratchy vol pot sorted!
My bass guitar was making an horrendous scratchy, distorted noise. I specifically bought this product to clean the potentiometers that control volume and tone. One liberal application straight into the pots and some vigorous turning has fixed the problem.
There are cheaper, own-brand type products on the market but this was in stock and for the sake of a couple of quid I'm not quibbling.
I'm very happy with this product and it is now a permanent feature in my instrument tool kit.

WD40 Contact Cleaner
I needed to clean the electrical contacts on an Audi speedometer instrument binnacle which is basically a maze of circuit boards and delicate wiring.
There are cheaper alternatives on the market but I decided to go for WD 40 contact cleaner because it has this directional spray nozzle and also states it is suitable for use on rubber and plastic.
I sprayed it on some metal contact pins which had become tarnished with a black carbon like deposit. It took a fair amount of gentle rubbing with cotton buds and reapplication before I could shift this deposit.
So it does work but is not a miracle cure, and it's expensive.

Does exactly as it says on the tin. Would recommend it over standard WD40 if you just need to clean electrical contacts for better connectivity
