Cleaning Volume Knobs?

Cleaning Volume Knobs?

Is there a easy/do-it-yourself way for cleaning noisy/scratching volume knobs on your guitar? I did a search here and found nothing. I remember reading (I think it was here) that if you turn your knobs all the way for about 50 times then the noise goes away but that is not helping. I actually tried it a few times (not sure if I actually got it to 50) but the noise won't go away.

Any tips?

Tuner/Contact cleaner/lubricant .

That's all I've ever used.

TIP: Caig. Do not use plain old tuner cleaner or lube. Use Caig:

You can read it all if you like, and learn about it. I use DeOxit and ProGold. But I'm not a guitartist so don't know specifically about guitar controls. They can't be that different from other potentiometers, though.
