any way to prevent carbon build-up in the power window switches?

time for a carbon cleaning, again...
why do I have to do this every year? I've been scraping them really good and even using the good electrical contact cleaner on them...
isn't there some kind of goop I can put on the rocker connectors in the switch to inhibit the formation of carbon on them so I don't have to worry about cleaning these things for another 20 years?

a mellow resistor?
That will make the windows go slower.
You could probably rig up a relay for the switches so they don't have to carry the motor current.

ive been assuming my windows were slow, and all four different speeds, because of carbon buildup in the motors. fortunately, i havent tried to remedy THAT yet, as it would appear that would be a lark.
i read a post from i think loyale2.7turbo that said something about replacing the power window relay under the passenger seat with a bosch one.. whats with this relay he was talking about? they arent relayed already?
