Painting Old Aluminum Duct Work

I need advise on painting old Aluminum ductwork. Our basement is all knotty pine on the walls and ceiling except for all this monstrous old aluminum duct work. First of all how do I clean it before painting it? Secondly, do I use latex or oil based paint and any suggestions? Thanks

Wash it with water/TSP.

Prime and paint with latex. The only factor is if it gets REAL hot in winter months with heat pumping through it, you might want to use oil, but most likely, latex would be fine.
