Audacity has a noise removal feature that lets you select a few seconds 
of what you consider noise, and identify that to the program as noise. A 
good spot for me is areas in a recording that are supposed to be silent 
but generally aren't if you're recording mic input live. Then you select 
the whole track and run the noise removal on it. Works well enough for me.
