A wire wheel on the male threads will clean it good enough for Gov't work.

Blow out the female hole for any remnants/dust/powder and you'll be in high cotton, or you could run the cleaned male bolt in and out of the hole a few times to loosen things up just a bit, then blow out the hole.

No, really, the mustache means I love you.
