Brake cleaner is actually to clean grease off the metal parts. Anything that soaks into the friction material usually ruins the material. Take the pads out and wash them well in the cleaner. If there is some lube remaining on the pads, try lightly sanding them with fine sandpaper (I put the sandpaper on a flat surface and rub the pads across). If they don't clean up completely, junk them.
