I have heard so many different recommendations on track cleaning & track maintenance that it is mind boggling. I think the only recommendation I have not heard is SNAKE OIL.
Here is an article that everyone should read at least twice before you tell me that I am an idiot: https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/mrhpub.com/2019-05-may/online/index.html?page=9 Clean your track with KEROSENE. When done cleaning, make sure that there is a VERY VERY light film of kerosene left on the rails. Same with your rolling stock.
I have heard of layouts running 2 years before a light cleaning is required. Kerosene is available at Home Depot, Lowes and some small hardware stores.

Acetone will melt plastic. If you use Acetone, you need to be sure you keep it off the plastic or wash it off.
