Contact Cleaner And Brush For Corroded Contacts?

I keep finding RJ45 connectors and jacks with much corrosion. What do you recommend for a contact cleaner? I've been using a stainless steel "toothbrush" type brush for cleaning but it is difficult to get inside the jacks with this. Anyone have recommendations for cleaning dirty contacts?

How about this stuff: CAIG Laboratories DeoxIT D5S-6-LMH Spray
