Default 2010 Camry SE throttle body cleaning

What is the best way to clean the throttle body on a 2010 Camry SE with the 2AR-FE (2.5l inline 4) engine??
Is it OK to push the throttle plate aside while cleaning with a rag/old toothbrush?

I plan to use Sea Foam Deep Creep cleaner.

This seems a bit early for cleaning the throttle body.

The Toyotanation website may have something.

Not up on this engine design, but suggest you do some research first. Some auto manufacturers throttle bores were coated with a thin material that could be damaged when cleaning.

In the past this was not the case for Camry but Toyota may have decided to do something different on this engine, never know.

There have been a few recalls and other issues for this year of Camry due to sticking throttle and slow throttle return.
