washing up liquid and water in a plastic pot - scrubbed on with an old tooth brush - wiped off with paper. If a lot of muck or I'm feeling really thorough I sometimes also use alcohol hand wipe things as well. Also clean pads and when clean check for debris. Maybe I'm sad but I find the process rather therapeutic - in fact if I can shift my arse I'm supposed to be doing some today - rain next week.

On rims use Isopropyl alcohol. Wipe off excess with clean rag. for brake blocks use a tiny screw-driver or similar to prise out any tiny pieces of grit, metal etc. Wipe off any excess dirt, grime etc with a clean rag.
