Cleaning the throttle body

Can anyone tell me what the usually procedure is for cleaning the throttle body?

Mine is only dirty on the bottom side of the butterfly and it seems difficult to get it clean on the lower half ( in full throttle position) without removing the whole throttle body or is that what is usually done (remove it)?

Thansk for any help

Remove it, clean with carb cleaner. (Keep the carb cleaner off the TPS) Reinstall.
