Hi!

I am looking for a electric contact cleaner to service my stuck up car stereo buttons and clean my mouse button (erratic clicking!)

I came across this much advised "Hosa’s D5S-6 Deoxit Contact Cleaner" which is here.

Have heard/read that this also helps correct micro-switches and cpacitative knobs /pots etc.

So am desperately searching for this thing! Can't find anything comparable in India. Could anyone help me out please?

Thanks!

Closest direct replacement is WD-40, though that's messy. You need to visit your local electronics market to see if you can find a suitable product. For example, in Calcutta we get undiluted isopropyl alcohol in aerosols. Now that's good stuff, except it can give you cancer if not handled properly.

A few drops of the same stuff out of a can works, though be aware the stuff at chemists' is likely diluted with water and will need to be properly dried out with a hot air blower before using microswitches.

Acetone works well too, not the one sold as nailpolish remover but the unperfumed product off a drugstore. It might melt a few materials, but should be somewhat safe on electronics.

Thanks for the reply! So basically we don't have any decent contact cleaner in India! So Sad!

I thought Phillips or someone would have made something in India too... So I can use the Isopropyl to clean small micro switches? Like mouse switches?

You get one from Kaiser fluids,i use it in my RC car to clean the mud and what not on the electronics.You get two types one meant for Live circuits meaning you can use it even if the device is switched On and other one for non live circuits which means you have to wait till it drys to use it.Made in bangalore.Not sure whether its available in north.
Costs around Rs250 or more the one meant for live circuit costs around Rs600 Electric Contact Cleaner - Electric Contact Cleaner Exporter, Manufacturer & Supplier, Bengaluru, India and for live

Ok, so can I get Kaiser/ CRC contact cleaners locally? Or online?
I will send enquiry for Kaiser, please let me know for CRC... Also, can CRC be used safely on plastic based micro switches (for example mouse switches)?

@greenhorn: from their website description of the product, the ABRO you linked to, should do fine. But the OP is quiet and query is dated Aug 12, wonder what he did finally!
