If you do it in situ, do it as you would a carb!

Or remove the TB then all sensors and the IAC and then clean with spray carb cleaner. Do not move the plunger on the IAC.

Or just drop it in a bucket of WD-40 for an hour or so then blow it dry with compressed air.

Maybe a little late but.....
I use spray seafoam and a brush. Spray it in with the engine running. Load it up.
Shut it off and take a brush and clean the butterflies. and the throat. Spray it down. Let it set for 20 minutes. The seafoam that gets in to the cylinders will act to decarbon the cylnders. Take it out and run it to clean it out.
