I've heard to use a Q-tip and maybe like some injector type cleaner. Not reaally sure, though, on what cleaner to use, but a q-tip would work well.

The heaters (the little pieces in the sensor) are very fragile. If you break one off, the car will not run right. That sensor is not cheap. Just spray it off with carb cleaner. Spray it from both sides. Then follow up by spraying it with electronics cleaner from both sides. That is all it takes to clean the MAF.
