look for oxy-clean free ( no color or fragance) if you can find it. But I wouldn't hesitate to use regular oxy clean if you can't

Oxiclean is great on cornies, it will clean out any ingrained odours.

Oxi is good for stainless steel but keep it away from aluminum. It will oxidize it.

yes, it will oxidize aluminum, but that oxide layer is good... it just looks ugly.

i've used oxiclean for many kegs when i first get them (all used), and it works quite well to clean them up.
