Default Egr valve question

Hello all. I have a weird question. 01 been stumbling, took egr valve off to clean. Upon removal, I found out that my brother didn't put my carb cleaner back. Is there anything else anyone could suggest for ne to clean the valve with? Live kinda outta the way, not close to anyone to be able to bring me carb cleaner. Hate to hafta put all this back together. Any id's?

Thx, Crewzin. I really didn't even think about it. Anyway, I used some alcohol(rubbin), small wire brush, & pipe cleaner. Put all back together. Not so much of a stumble now, but a miss and tiny hesitation. Possible fouled plug(s) from egr not working properly? Oh, try as I might, couldn't get a fault code, whereas before it come on at full throttle, or at least hard acceleration. Next big project? Motor mounts !!
