Hot soapy water is good... Methanol or WD-40 will remove any other residues that don't break down in the soapy water. None of these will harm aluminum in any way, although Methanol is toxic so don't drink it (but it's fine to get on your hands a tiny bit). It's quite a bit stronger than your average rubbing alcohol which is why I prefer it (and it's widely available in 99% purity, whereas Isopropyl alcohol is sometimes restricted to lower purity due to its use in drug making).
