Sprayed Brake parts cleaner into Cylinder head

I was replacing valve cover gasket and while taking it off, some small particles fell into the cylinder head. I sprayed entire cylinder head area with brake parts cleaner to clean the particles and had Bounty paper towels at the bottom of the cylinder bay to catch the dirt and liquid. Unfortunately, nail bite size plastic crack from grommet also fall into the engine and can't find it anymore.

1. Would it damage the engine by spraying with brake parts cleaner?
2. Would Oil filter catch the small plastic crack fall into the engine?

Thanks a lot.

1. No
2. Yes.

Change the oil/filter sometime if you're worried. Probably no hurry.
