I cured a few of mine by just operating them a few times

Been going through my sma relays and testing them on my primitive spectrum analyser has shown that I have quite a few lossy relay on TX as high as 4dB and quite a few showing around 1dB on RX side. I wonder if anyone can suggest a suitable contact cleaning method - one suggestion Ive had is connect 12v thru 500ohm resistors to NO and NC and leave them switching for about 5 minutes

Some of the relays of coarse can be dismantled and cleaned but most cannot - any comments please
