Release the brakes and scrub the brake pads clean, then rinse the rims thoroughly, then wipe them down with alcohol.
If they still squeal, wet the rims and dust them with Comet or Bon Ami or similar mild cleanser. Go for a short ride, applying the brakes lightly while pedaling or coasting down a hill. Clean everything again and see if that helps.
