Default What's the best way to clean the checkering on grips

Going to pick up a 27 2 3 1/2" tomorrow. I want to clean her up and noticed some dirt in the checkering. I'm sure a nylon toothbrush will get in between the checkering. But, what do you guys recommend to clean, and protect the grips? Thanks.

I just use some paint thinner (mineral spirits) NOT the odorless kind, the regular kind.

If you have Ballistoil you could use that also.
