Sweetwater has large cans that will last you forever and then some for what you'll need:

This is DeOxit D5, which is a contact cleaner and will set the jittery servos straight:

And this is DeOxit Faderlube F5 which will keep them working for longer (probably forever)

I follow what Joel does (I think), which is about every 50 flights a tiny shot of D5 and when dry a tiny shot of F5. Be careful, if you use the stuff, when you shoot the D5 in, as it may run out black and stain the plane around the servo. I make sure there are paper towels wedged all around the servo so that if (when) crud comes out it's caught by the paper towels and doesn't leave black streaks like I learned it did on my UMX Yak.
