Default Throttle Body Cleaning....

Hi all, new to the forum and hopefully someone can help.
I have a 2008 equinox that I cleaned the throttle body on. I did not remove the TB, but rather had my wife hold down the gas pedal with the engine off while I gently cleaned. I was very careful not to press hard on the valve and I used TB cleaner.
Now when driving, I am having some weird surges. When coming to a stop, the engine will idle around 1100 rpms, then after about 5 to 8 seconds of being completely stopped, the idle will drop down to the normal 800 or so.
I can't seem to find the exact idle relearn procedure so I went with the for 3 minutes, turn off for 1, then run for 3. It didn't really help any. Went downtown today so I had plenty of stop and go traffic plus constant speeds of 65 MPH. Other than that, everything seems fine.

Any ideas???
Thanks for any help!
