[filmscanners] Cleaning old Kodachrome slides

I'm beginning to scan some old Kodachrome slides my father took 50-60
years ago. They have a lot of dirt, dust, mildew, etc on both sides of
the film. I'm planning to take them out of the original mounts and clean
with PEC-12 and cotton pads on both sides, being particularly careful on
the emulsion side. I'm planning to remount them in new plastic mounts
and scan them on my trusty ScanDual II with Vuescan. Any thoughts and
advice as to what I should be doing differently, or what I might do to
clean the slides better and/or more safely?
