    I just use rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip. There's probably a better way to do it but Q-tips are just so convenient

    99% Isopropyl alcohol & Q-tips. 99% = faster evaporation.

    I use Arctic Silver's ArctiCleaner kit- cleaner and surface prep in two bottles.

    Prior to that I used acetone followed by isopropyl alcohol.
