Throttle body cleaning

I have a sticker on my IAC valve that says, "do not use a cleaner...blah blah....do to a special coating on the throttle body.

It is very dirty in there and so is my valve. Anybody know what I could use to get the crap out of there. Is there a special cleaner? I have been having rough idles thought this may be a good place to start
