    Looking for recommendations for what to use to clean noisy pots and switches.
    Seems like DeoxIT D5S is popular.
    Thanks.

    DeoxIT D5... by far the best I've tried. There's also DeoxIT D100L in a tiny bottle with a brush top that's good for when you don't want to blast the area with a spray.

    This for cleaning. Then 2-26 for lubrication.

    If you dont want to buy any products just get some isopropyl alcohol and drip some down the shaft or soak the pot while turning back and forth. Works every time for me and wont hurt the guitar finish. I would still protect the guitar if you leave the pot on. Lubricate afterwards
