Best electrical grease cleaner?

For general cleaning (lubing switches is another matter) I like to use denatured alcohol.

Be careful about buying drug store Isopropyl (Rubbing Alcohol) as it is often diluted down to a 50% to 70% solution and doesn't do nearly as good a job.

You can get denatured alcohol at a pharmacy (they keep it behind the counter now), but it is way too expensive. A much better source is a hardware store. I buy it by the gallon. Here it is in a quart size, but your local store probably also has it in gallons:

Always test it on a surface first, as in a few cases it can damage labels or finish.

Some (not all) rubbing alcohols will contain significant amounts of oils to keep from drying out the skin. It is rubbing alcohol after all.
