Probably any generic motor spray you can get from Wally World or Autozone, etc. I've persoanlly never cleaned my starter box motors, probably never will. When they stop working (probably a few years at least) that just means it's time for a new box!

I use a can of electric motor cleaner from Menards. Just make sure you get the plastic safe stuff.

Motor Spray, or if you can't find it, Mass Airflow Sensor Cleaner works great too..
