Remove the air inlet hose, and spray using Throttle body cleaner and a rag, make sure you get the backside of the throttle plate, so you might have to remove, like Justin recommended. Make sure you buy a new gasket if you do.

Thanks guys, I will take it off and clean it as soon as the weather warms a bit.
