Yes, this is perfectly legal. You mark your ball, usually with a coin or marker. You can pick the ball up, clean it and replace it in it's original spot. The putter green is the only place where you can do so.

In normal play, you may mark your ball, clean it and then replace the ball in it's original spot- but only when you are on the putting green.
