    using a clean and soft paintbrush, try removing dust from under and around the joystick. if there's grime, use a harder paintbrush to try and remove it.

    if that doesn't do anything, try recalibration from the controller-menu

    Toothbrush could also work. But you'd really have to open the JoyCon up to be able to clean it properly.
    Rubbing alcohol is not a bad idea either.

    let the whole joycon swim 24h in isoprophanol and then let it 24h sleep
    use a wheight to hold it under isophropanol
    swim allitle bit with it

    That might be overkill, it's going to take a long time to dry out fully in all the cracks.
    BTW, it looks like the sticks can be disassembled. When I had my JoyCons open I noticed the metal shield underneath can be pried off, maybe the plastic pieces can be removed and cleaned properly once that is off.

    only if its a new toothbrush though. previously used ones, no matter how long you clean them, always end up with residue from the paste that, once dried out, turns into even more fine dust.

    definitely overkill

    glad to hear that helped.
    another note, you might feel like blowing on the sticks to remove dust from now on, but don't, that just gets more humidity in the area where dust can stick to and grime up.
    just give it a short cleanup with a soft brush every week.

    Obviously :P
    A lot of professionals (and hobbyists alike) swear by using a toothbrush and rubbing alcohol to clean grimy electronics, if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.

    Sometimes, if it is oxidization of a pad, IPA won`t clean it. Now, a lot of people use a stanley blade (razor blade) to scratch contacts clean.

    Bad idea.

    Invest in a fibreglass pencil. Won`t scratch the pads and will get rid of all crap. We used to use them on car ignition points and contactors.

    Then a quick colouring in with a normal graphite pencil to protect a bit (rubbing excess off with a rubber obviously)
