Yeah this works. I got electronic contact cleaner a few months ago after my joycon drift started getting really bad for a while.

I just do a few quick sprays and then wiggle the stick around for like 30 seconds. I found, with both my controller and my brother's controller, that after doing this once it mostly fixed the problem but it didn't take too long for the problem to come back, but then I sprayed it a second time and now its been a couple months with no problem whatsoever. It is a temporary fix as the problem is dirt gets in there and you need to spray it out, but if you give it a real good spray, or do it a couple separate times, you shouldn't have to do it again for a few months. And it isn't hard to do so its a good solution.
