Question Clean ABS sensor ?

Part of my maintenance check list says "clean rear ABS sensor."
Well.......the face of it is flat with three small recesses.
I didn't want to go sticking anything into those little holes without knowing what's in there.
How do y'all clean those things ?
Thanx for any..........................

As long as there is nothing visible on the surface they are "clean". Don't worry about the holes.

Spray it a few times with brake cleaner - while rotating the wheel.

Non-fluorocarbon variety please...

for Ken's sake!
