Clean 'em with distilled water, then leave to dry for a few days - good as
new :)
If you really feel pessimistic, get a toothbrush and clean every single
component with 90% isopropanol :)
OTOH, if you feel brave, pull the boards and run them through a dishwasher.
Can't remember what settings to use, but it supposedly works wonders as long
as you don't mind having a few labels ripped off the board here and there
(and a few electrolytics might break off if you're real unlucky).
