Replacing brake shoes; cleaning tips?

Seems like some rather obvious shit, but I'm going to be replacing my brakes and inside these hubs its just a filthy mess. just years of buildup. So before I just use anything, anyone have any tips?

I just de-glaze everything with some coarse grit sand paper. Then wipe everything clean.
