Treat it like an instrument. Get a non abrasive cleaning solution and a cotton cloth and dab some cleaning stuff on it. Not too much, then just rub around the record in a circle.

they make special brushes to clean them out. you can use a soft lint free cloth and 20% isopropyl alcohol or distled water if you want to be gentle with them. with either use concentric motions to clean.

I use it on my parents' old records. It removes dirt and dust, and prevents static build up. You only need to apply once every couple dozen plays, seriously. One can is good for about 150 records.

Guitar Center carries it.

EDIT: It also cleans your smudged CDs!

Find one of these. Crosley makes them pretty cheap and even have cleaning kits. Vinyl rules!
