[amsat-bb] cleaning coax connectors

Seeking advice on a cleaning solution for N-connectors which have been 
stored on cable in a barn and show a little verdigris.  That is, they 
have been protected from direct rain, but not ambient humidity. 

I considered some TV-tuner and control cleaner I have here, but that 
leaves a libricating residue with unknown effects on dielectric 
behavior, etc.

Surely somebody's been thru this before!

Any suggestions?

(Yes, I'm digging out stuff for the FD satellite station . . ..)

Thanks & 73,
