I use the old socks that have lost their mates in the dimensional vortex of the dryer. I turn them inside out over my hand, dampen slightly with warm water and it gets into all the nooks and crannies. I then clean the braking surface with rubbing alcohol. I may try the bug and tar remover that someone else suggested.
