There are a couple of ways that you can do it. After removing it, you can carefully clean it with q-tip and isopropyl alcohol. Twisting the q-tip strands together will help prevent leaving little fuzzies behind.

Or you can buy some spray MAF cleaner at an auto parts store.

Be sure and inspect the maf carefully after you clean it for any hairs or residue. They can cause issues with improper readings.
