Kolstein (www.kolstein.com) sells a cleaner and polish in a set, or the cleaner alone. The cleaner has camphor in it, but I don't know what else. I have also used lemon oil polish. I use products sparingly. You'll see orchestra players routinely brushing off rosin flecks after a performance with a soft clean cloth. Save the heavy duty stuff for when you need it.
