A good soak and scrub with Oxyclean Free and hot water. Sometimes a scotch pad comes in handy.

+1 oxyclean free. I soak the inside of mine overnight. I don't clean the outside since it doesn't get all that dirty.

Are you looking to do something like Bobby_M? Polish you kegs to a mirrorlike shine?
