Uses for electronic contact cleaner?

I bought an 11 ounce can of contact cleaner so that I may spray 3-4 sprays into a radio that was having volume control issues.

Now, what to do with the rest of the canister? Are there other around-the-house uses? Everything else electronic in my house/car is working fine.

Just seems like such a waste. I knew nobody that I could borrow some from, and I could not take my radio into an auto parts store.

Any and all ideas welcome!

Cleans white plastic like no other. It can basically be used any way that wd-40 can.

No problem, they'd all swear they didn't inhale.

Isn't contact cleaner a fairly aggressive degreaser? -- bicycle drivetrain.

Alternately, add a lighter and you got a decent flamethrower.
