The question of good contact cleaners and lubricants for electronics 
comes up often on the air and on the mailing list.  So I researched a 
bit today to pin down a decent source:

I see that MCM has the great contact cleaner Deoxit D5 on sale...


It is $12.95 if you type in promo code WR903 when you check out.

It is a good policy when shopping MCM to type in all their current 
promo codes (which correspond to flyers and catalogs they've issued.  
You can find them at


The current ones are WR903, WSP903, WD902, and WA902.

I've settled on two main lubricants for electronics restoration:

For situations that want "oil" I use a multipurpose oil that is 
described as "turbine oil" sold by GC. The long "extendo-spout" is 
great for reaching deep.
MCM has it


For situations that want "grease" I use white lithium grease sold in a 
squeeze tube. GC has a nice type.
MCM has it


Don't forget the long cotton swab sticks to apply the grease or soak up 
excess oil down in there...   $1.29 with promo codes.
