Is it safe to spray DeoxIT into relays?

Hello all
I am trying to restore a 12/74 PAL 351bdx and when i hook it up to a antenna there is no signal passing thru.
If i follow the schematic it should run thru a few legs of a relay so my first thought is to spray it out real good.
First a quick background the amp came out of a garage where it has sat for over 30 years and it was COVERED
in dust and a bit of dirt, Using a compressor and air gun along with a nylon brush i cleaned it and now it looks
almost like new, But i assume the relays have the same dust and dirt on the contacts,
So is it safe to spray it out? It would be a huge pain to unsolder it to run dollar bills thru it.
Thank you for reading and and hope for your replies.

Aren't relay contacts gold plated? No need to spray anything.
If contact is bad it means gold layer is gone and relay should be replaced.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
