Cleaning

I guess this is a good folder to ask this question.

You have a bike, maybe a garage find, it`s 40 years old with lots of dirt and dried oil on the rims.

What cleaning solution and type of brush would you use to clean the bike up, without leaving a soap residue on the rims?

The brake pads will be replaced, but first I just want to get the bike good and clean before working on it. And, I don`t want a soap film left on the rims where the brake pads meet. Also what cleaning solution do you use to clean the rims where the brake pads contact?
