WD-40 is a great solvent for cleaning, but not great as a long term protectant (thickens up with a gummy residue.)

Vaseline is not advisable, as petroleum products tend to eat a lot of the rubber products used in wiring.

Clean with solvent of choice (WD-40, electronics contact cleaner, etc.) and spray with silicone or use a tube of dielectric grease - same stuff.)
