I just re-bleeded my brakes. Now they perform awesome again. I was wondering how do you clean the discs, if you use a special product or alcohol or what's the best method... is it something to look after every now and then or it's not worth it? I already sanded the brake pads.

it's been mentioned that auto brake cleaner is not so good because it carries a little bit of petroleum product to keep the rotors from rusting right away. on a car, the heat and pressure generated can burn it off, but on a bike, especially with organic pads, it's not so good. alcohol or Dawn/water

Rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle is what we use - spray it on, let air dry. Done.
