Default Cleaning my IAT Sensor

Just put a K&N CAI on my truck and when i pulled the IAT out of the hemi hat, she was looking dirty. Was curious if there is anything i can clean the crud off the sensor with or something i can spray into the intake that wont harm anything

Brake cleaner works well and won't harm the sensor.

MAF cleaner is fine as well, but brake cleaner will NOT harm the sensor.
