Cleaning with anything water based is flat asking for trouble.
Dusting with those dusters that seem to grab dust works and is pretty gentle. If you vacuum the hair I recommend you get one of those "Dog Hair" attachments for your vacuum. Sometimes they are at pet stores. Get the gentle one with soft rubber fingers. I've had mine so long I've forgotten what is was called.
Don't hang mounts near heat sources. (ex. over the fireplace or near a heat vent.)
WD40 will drive moisture off mounts and really make them look great. Don't make a habit of this. WD40 builds up and makes things worse instead of better if you overdue it.
I've heard several people recommend the Liquid gold. I've never used it but it does have a good reputation.

That reminds me of something me and Jason noticed at the new Bass Pro here in Branson. As you enter the building there's a big fireplace on the right. Standing on the mantle is a full body mount trophy buck. Yep, they had a fire going and aparently never heard of a damper. Smoke had turned that trophy buck almost solid black with soot! You'd think someone that worked there would have noticed. When we pointed it out you should have seen the paniced look on the manager's face!
