All of my light switches (the switches, not the plates) have have an accumulation of grunge around them. It's going to take some degreaser, like 409, a toothbrush, and toothpicks to dissolve and pick this stuff out.
I'm concerned about spraying a liquid into a hot electrical outlet. Is it sufficient to turn off the power to the switches while I'm working on them, and perhaps leave it off until I'm sure everything is dry again?
Anyone have a better solution - short of removing or replacing the switches? (I'm not an electrician, nor have I played one on tv )
