From my personal experience, the best way to clean your old negatives is compressed air and antistatic clothe (the same you use for your glasses/screen/scanner). NO DETERGENTS OR OTHER CHEMICAL STAFF!
Some negatives might be so badly damaged that only scanning can help them. You can do a pretty good job in photoshop, however it requires some skills and takes a lot of time.
Recently Iíve sent my negs and slides to Memobase (www.memobase.co.uk). They did a great job, for 40p they clean, scan and repair your negatives. Moreover, you can pay only for scans you are satisfied with!
Good luck with your old photos!

You can clean your old photographs & negatives by washing them with lukewarm water.
For removing drop spots you can mix liquid soup in it, its a simplest technique for cleaning old photos,
I use this method for my photography shop as its less time consuming.
Washing photographs with covers......
After washing remove safety cover......
