Don't use any chemical cleaners! Use steel wool and lots of care.
All you want to do is clean the connection joints and be VERY
sure to remove any steel wool "hairs" that might be left behind.
Wipe the cleaned joints with a clean cloth that you don't mind
ruining. A good quality paper-towel works just fine.
