I pressure can differents meats and the process almost always leaves a greasy film on the jars. What is the best and easiest way to clean the processed jars before storing them?

I usually use just plain old soapy dishwatear and a washcloth to wipe them down then rinse them with hot water. Is there a better way?

That's what I do to all jars after 24 hours of cooling after they come out of the canner. I set the jars in the sink, take off the screw bands, and wash them with warm soapy water, then rinse with warm water.
