Why do you think they need to be cleaned. Rev to 15K and hold it there, it will clean them up nicely. If you have to ask then take them to a "pro".

pull it apart and soak em in some ether... some steel wool would prolly do the trick.. and put em back together..

or spray some ether in each throttle bodies alittle at a time it will bog down some just let it come back and do it over and over and over until you are satisfied

aside from that..

get some that you put in the gas that cleans em up some.. it wont work that great but its the easiest way to get the shittiest results LOL

Yeah I was thinking internal valves, so which is it. Throttle body valves or the other ones.
