As I was removing my old CPU, a small amount of TIM got into one or two holes in the socket on my motherboard. What is the best way to clean out the socket so I don't short out my new CPU?

Spray isopropyl alcohol to dissolve and cottons buds, just don't leave any fluff behind. Excess isopropyl will just evaporate.
