Default Air Mass Flow Sensor Cleaning

Any DIY on Air Mass Flow sensor cleaning? Gas mileage is low after new plugs, wires, and filter.
Thanks

CRC Mass AIR Flow Sensor Spray works great. If you use a k&n filter , sometimes you need to clean it more often. very easy to do.

MAF cleaner only. Also, do not touch the wire with anything. It'* very thin and can break.
