I also remember Sound Forge's noise reduction plug-in which I used years 
ago on 78 rpms to do some light cleaning/declicking at uni (that's more 
than 10 years ago...)

When searching for a Linux alternative I remember pretty good results 
with Gnome Wave Cleaner [1]. Not sure if it's maintained and if it still 
works though, haven't used it in a while..

Also if it's hiss, as others suggested you might manage with just EQ?
