06 Cylinder Head/Valves Cleaning

Just received my spare cylinder head in the mail today. Im about to clean it up a bit while I educate myself more on these heads but I noticed the intake and exhaust valves have a lot of build up on them and need to be thoroughly cleaned. I planned to use brake cleaner or throttle body cleaner on the head and valves. Does anyone have any better recommendations on products to clean the valves and head?

Easy-off oven cleaner and a scotchbrite pad. Go easy on the valve contact surfaces.

Be careful with brake cleaner, wicked poisonous.
