OK, so chemically, it's mostly lighter fluid, which does work well for 
such things.

turn lead solder into gold.  And liberally spraying that through the vent 
slots and speaker grill of my childhood portable record player should make 
it sound as good as I remember it sounding when I was 8 years old.  Just 
using a gold power cord wasn't enough.  And WD-40 also wasn't enough.
"Witchdoctor", "Purple People Eater", "Nash Rambler", "You Ain't Nothin' 
But A Hounddog" deserve the best sound quality possible!  :-)
