Those new cheapie test leads with the slippery alligator clip covers can be helped with a sprinkle of baby powder.

We know the real fix is buying quality.
I have some from the 60s.

Oh, yeah! Where did I buy those slimy things? PE? AES? Yuck. I'll have to try the baby powder soon.

I thought this was one crazy idea when I first read it. I tried it and from 1 to 10. I'll give it a 7. As you said, It only helps. Don't be cheep with the powder. Shake it all down inside. The old "Made in America" stuff was quality and still is somewhat. If you can find it. Made in America now means. We put it together here.
