The answer is

X

Explanation

Alone I am 24th

'X' is the 24th letter in the alphabets

with a friend I am 20

'X' with another 'X' gives 'XX', which is equal to 20 in roman numeral system.

Another friend and I am unclean

I think it's referring to 'XXX', which most people consider as dirty.

    $\begingroup$ actually I'm thinking about Gold since 24 Karat is pure, combined with other metals it can be 20 Karat haha But the last clue missed the Gold properties. $\endgroup$ – Mekalikot Jan 14 '16 at 8:23
