I would heat it first, and then wipe it down afterwards.

just alcohol would be sufficient but if you must, do the lighter first. a "crack torch," one that shows no yellow flame is best to use (less carbon deposite to have to clean off of the needle).

Wiping the tip after you heat it creates a film of alcohol that might kill anything that just so happens to cling to it.
