Or, go to an auto parts store and buy a pan for oil changes. The solvent won't damage it. You could use carb cleaner, if you want. It's a matter of what kinds of solvents you want to use and how soon you want it clean. I try to avoid betting my blades wet with water- the expansion slots can rust and when that happens, it can clog the slots, making them ineffective. This means the blade will warp when it gets hot and that's dangerous- the wood can be pinched between the blade and fence, causing it to kick back.
Use paste wax to coat any cutting tools- it keeps the pitch from sticking as badly and makes cleanup faster. It's a good thing to do to the table top, miter slots, fence face and miter gauge, too. The last thing you want is for anything to stick and let go unexpectedly.
Use paste wax without silicone- it's impossible to get a good finish if silicone is in/on the wood.
