There are a lot of do's and don'ts when doing this. First of all, DO NOT use any sort of metal polish or aluminum cleaner. This would work on older bats that are primarily bare metal and not painted. Also, do NOT use steel wool. This will scratch your bat faster than you can imagine.

What I have found to be highly effective is this: Get some Soft Scrub (without bleach) bath and kitchen cleaner (available at any grocery store). Get a 2-sided sponge (one with standard soft sponge side and one with the slightly coarse but not too rough side).

Dampen the sponge, and apply some soft scrub directly to the sponge. Then scrub the dirty areas of the bat. If you are using the soft sponge side, scrub vigorously. If you are using the coarse sponge side, scrub lightly. Scrub 1/4 to 1/2 the bat at a time.

Have a dry or slightly damp towel or rag handy to wipe off the dirt and residue that you just scrubbed off. DO NOT submerge your bat in water to rinse. If you have a 2-piece "composite" bat, there is always a slight chance water can enter at the joints and then begin to harm your bat from the inside.

In no time, you will have a sparkly clean bat. There is also a bonus of having your bat smell like lemons if you get the scented Soft Scrub.
