Default 87 Camry question about what kind of cleaner to use on throttle body?

Hello there,
I have a 87 Camry 2.0 5 speed and have a question on what kind of throttle body cleaner to use to clean the throttle body? I ask this because the car is so old and there are many kinds i.e. Deep creek sea foam, throttle body cleaner, and many others. Please advise me on the best one to use as I am afraid of using a brand/kind that might damage the IAC unit. Thanks for your help in this matter.
Dave

Try to find a throttle body cleaner that is safe for plastics, O2 sensors and the converter. Might look at CRC Sensor Safe throttle body cleaner.

Never used it. The company states is safe for plastic, sensors, etc, thus would assume it OK.

If your cleaning the IAC valve best to do so with the engine running. Don't add too much that the engine dies.

Hello there,
I was going to clean it with engine off by taking off the plenuem connection to expose the throttle body and butterfly. Once that is exposed I was going to spray a little bit of deep creep in the throttle body & the iac (HOLE) that is near the butterfly and inside the throttle body. So I am guessing I should spray only a little bit down the whole to the iac inside the throttle body is that what you are saying? Please advise me here thanks.
