Default CPU and Thermal Compound

I recently purchased Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound. The instructions say that before i put the compound on the CPU, i should clean it with some sort of alcohol. I was wondering how necessary this was to get the full effect of the new thermal compound. Or if i do have to clean it, is there anything a little more household that i can clean the CPU with?
