    Unhappy Plastic straw went inside my Civic's 00 throttle body.

    Plastic straw went inside my Civic's 00 throttle body.Not the straw which we use for drinking but the one which comes with throttle cleaner.I was spraying the cleaner in the throttle body with butterfly open.Within a second straw just vanished.Looked under the car then the engine bay no where to be found.The nightmare.Open the butterfly and there it was far inside.Friends then came to help.Tried a lot but then as expected went down in the valves and out of sight.Closed the throttle body fired up the engine and engine behaved normally.I'm still frightened.Where would the straw be now?It's a thin plastic straw and height was about 6 inches.It was Saturday night went on a drive and Mashallah everything went fine.Still scared.Car is petrol driven.
