If it's really nasty use engine shampoo from an auto parts store. I just wipe mine with wd40 and a rag.

CRC it weekly to keep it from rusting!!! As for cleaning... parts cleaner, brake cleaner in the cans work great for the tough spots....

No matter what you use, there is one simple ingredient that many forget.....HOT WATER! Ever try and do the dishes with cold water? Hot water makes a huge difference.
