Since the caliper is disassembled it is a good idea to clean it. Brake cleaner is a good product, but I prefer to use hot, soapy water instead.

Use an old toothbrush to scrub the caliper, focusing on the pistons. Try to remove as much of the brake dust as possible.

Brake dust is hazardous to your health. Do not inhale any of the dust particles, and try to sustain minimal skin contact if possible.
