Advise with electrical connectors

So I have my carb off for rebuild on my 98 450ES and see a number of connectors that I can easily have access to clean. When taken apart they are very dirty inside both sides, what do you do to clean inside the small areas by the pins? I do have contact cleaner but think it needs to be scrubbed to make it right. Also after the cleaning I will fill with white lithium to waterproof them. Eventually will do all of them but doing what I can get to first.

Fill with dielectric grease when you're done cleaning them to waterproof them. The best you can really do is use contact cleaner to clean them unless you have the correct tools to take them apart and clean the pins individually. Or maybe have teeny tiny brushes and the patience of a god, that would work also....

I’ve always filled the connectors, never had an issue, will continue to fill them until I do have an issue. Most people I’ve talked to that regularly snorkel machines do it the same way I do.
