Crocus cloth is "I believe" jewelers rouge on a backing, but be careful. Some "cloth" is more abrasive than the abrasive. Bond paper with just enough deoxit to wet the paper. There have been several good alternatives posted.

I used to have one of the diamond dressing tabs. Generally, an abrasive use is for the last resort cases.

Sandpaper is a no no on relay contacts. It leaves minute sand

Use a metal contact file or good grade of extra fine Emory cloth.

I found a ham selling a strip of very fine grit "sandpaper" he
uses to
clean silver Morse keys and relay contacts.
I ordered some, but not tested yet.

p.s., I do not know the fellow, 73, Charly
