  • Yes, if it dries, you can just pretty much vacuum it right out.

  • I haven't tried this, but I heard a ice cube might loosen it up. It's worth a try, especially if it's dry.

  • Since its dry already, get a hard wire brush a rub it out. The kind they use for grills and such. Then vacuum up the bits.
