Removing Carbon Deposits

Is there a chemical I buy that will remove carbon deposits from a solenoid (the copper spool of wire)? I have my original Camaro clock working after removing (scraping off) some of the deposits. I can’t physically get to all of it though. Thanks for any recommendations.

Carbon - black or copper sulfate - greenish white deposits?

The deposits are black & have a consistently like that of black plastic that was set on fire & burned. After I scraped some of it off, the clock started working again.
