Question Cleaning plastic inlet manifold

Hi guys,
What is the best way/product to clean inside a plastic inlet manifold from a diesel car? Will be removing swirl flaps tomorrow, so want to clean inside a manifold while it is off the car.
Thanks.

Brake cleaner / contact cleaner should do the trick

I’ve freshened up an engine bay in a car I was returning to the lease company with an aerosol of tyre shine. But I’d use a strong concentration of KC Plast Star on a car I was keeping.
