I'm getting ready to fit some cloth tape in yellow but whenever I've used it before it seems to have a habit of getting very mucky. Basically I want to know if/how I can clean it or even better, stop it getting dirty.

Typical of cloth tape! It get dirty and fast too, scrubbing it and getting it wet through usually loosens the glue
and it can move, I'd just re-new it.

Other tips are...

keep your hands very clean.
If you use track mitts keep them washed & clean too.
Keep the bike clean.

Carry baby wipes in a tiny bag, these can be used for clean up in the event of a break down or puncture.
