I'm sure this has probably been discussed before, but I have a scratchy volume pot in my strat and am not sure how to clean it or what to use to clean it. I have heard that regular contact cleaner is bad and than I need a lubricating contact cleaner. Help?

I've got the same problem with the neck volume on my Eclipse II. I've been told that contact cleaner will be a temporary fix but replacing the pot will be the best choice. GuitarPartsDepot.com (GPD.com) has 250k and 500k pots for $5.95 each. That's the ESP kind, at least. But I'm sure they're all about the same price. I've been considered buying three new pots for my guitar.
ESP Eclipse II SW - D'Addario 11-49 Eb
LTD F-400FM - Ernie Ball 12-56 C#
Ibanez Iceman 300
Peavey Transtube 112 EFX
