Removing "dirt" from the barrel threads - help needed

I am wondering if anyone knows an easy way of removing "dirt" that accumulates between the threads on fountain pen barrels. On some of my pens the threads are right at the point where I hold the pen while writing. Over time some sweat, skin lotion and various other skin resiudes accumulate between the threads. I've tried soaking pen in water, using some cleaning alcohol, but nothing seems to work. It appears that sweat, skin lotions and various skin residues are really hard to remove from barrel threads. Do you have any idea how to do it? I would appreaciate any kind of help.
Thank you.
