you should only clean the sliding surfaces of the caliper with a water based cleaner, as any solvent, ie gasoline, kero, or the like will make the rubber parts of the caliper extreemly un happy- do not put a grease on the sliding parts as it will fly off and stick to the pads and soon you have no brakes. What dosn't fly off will be coated in brake dust and cause more problems. A coarse wet n dry sandpaper can remove rust from the caliper frame. don't take the caliper itself apart as they are not easy to get back together correctly- don't forget your insurance as if you crash after working on your own brakes, someone else may end up living in your house.
