Cleaning Bird Feeders

I was reminded by comments against some recent observations of the need to clean bird feeders to prevent the spread of disease. What is the best way to do this? Just clean warm water with a stiff brush? Is there a range of permitted "additives" to improve cleaning? On the other hand, are there prohibited agents?
