Default Tire cleaning help--please

I was attempting to bleed my front brakes on my 84 VT700C, after looking in MC reservoir and seeing this black soup where clear fluid should be. The right side went fine. The left side was another story.

The bleeder valve was frozen, I applied a bit too much torque and snapped it off right above the caliper. Fluid quickly collected into a nice puddle right below the caliper and got onto the side wall and tread of my front tire.

How do I safely clean the brake fluid off my tire, especially the tread?

Thanks for the advice.

Don
