Pretty much as the title states, I need to clean my throttle body, but I don't have any 'throttle body cleaner'.

Are there any other common solvents I could use instead, that would be both effective and safe on the throttle body? For example, brake, carburetor or MAF sensor cleaner?

    I always thought carburetor and throttle body cleaner were the same thing. Bake cleaner works too. Brake cleaner is good at not leaving any residue behind. – rpmerf Jan 17 '19 at 13:50
