Whats the best way to clean cork grips?

I'd heard of people using denatured alcohol and used it on some bait rods years back and it worked well. google "how to clean cork fly rod grips" and you will probably get all kinds of ideas.
Bad juju. man thats funny, I'd use that phrase for many things but never about fishing pole grips. I will proceed being careful to leave some of the juju hidden away.

Thanks All

I've used a soft-scrub mildly abrasive cleaner with a wet paper towel on cork. It worked well for me but I didn't scrub too hard....FYI this was recommended to me by someone who has used this procedure for years and is very picky regarding his equipment.

Soft bristled brush and a little laundry detergent or dawn. I do not like using abrasives (sand paper, hard bristled brushes), it can some times create a ridging..
