Yep. Or electrical contact cleaner. I think alcohol (not beer) and contact cleaner (not the eye kind) are the only two things I'd use, and be careful.

My daddy says if you were a better housekeeper, it would never get dirty. And next time don't use a qtip with earwax on it to clean your MAF sensor.
