I've got a butt load of photos of my kids taken beginning in the 80s that I'm going to scan. I want to know if anyone can recommend a method for cleaning off the many finger prints and other gook before I scan.

All of the photos are on the plastic coated paper. I'm thinking I can rinse them in a solution of Kodak Photoflo and let them dry (I know Photoflo is intended for B&W negatives but thought it would loosen the greasy finger prints and lead to a spot free drying).
Any recommendations regarding the cleaning of photos and color negatives in prep for scanning will be appreciated.
