Clean oil inside the intake?

I just pulled the intake off and before I reinstalled it, would like to clean the oil residue inside. What would be the best way to do this? Thanks!

I don't know how well it worked, but I set mine up on end and let it drain for four days into a container, then I took the gasoline I captured from the fuel rails and poured it in the manifold and swished it around and drained that out. Finally I wiped town the interior and runners with a rag attached to a long claw like grabbing tool.

Diesel fuel is always what i was taught even thought it is the most dangerous thing you can use. Old timers love it because cleans amazing and lubricates at the same time

The worst thing to use is gasoline since the vapors are highly flammable. I knew a guy that got seriously burned cleaning parts this way. I may be giving away my age with this but we used to fill empty food cans with dirt and diesel fuel to use as torches at night to keep the Koreans from robbing us blind in the field. We would add diesel to these while they were burning. I'd like to see you to that with gas.
