De Oxit. On some pieces you may be able to spray from the outside but removing the cover and getting to the control parts is always preferable. It's also a plus if you blow out the dust while you are in there using an office compressed can cleaner or air compressor and hose if you have one available.
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

I recommend the 100% solution with the needle applicator versus the spray; MUCH more precise. It's expensive, but worth it & lasts forever.
