What to use to clean spacers and rotors?

Hey guys I am probably going to install my spacers soon. The spacers were very dirty and greasy. I was wondering how and what to use to clean the spacers and the rotors properly before installing them. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

Those spacers will almost certainly get stuck to the hub/wheel unless you put some anti-seize lubricant on both sides of the spacer when installing.

You can use steel wool to clean the hub of any rust prior to installing the spacers.

And the spacers themselves ... see how much soap and water gets off.
