She put a crayon in the oven.....

Yes one of my two year olds put a crayon in the oven when it was preheating last night... Before you tell me how I should have been watching my kids blah blah.  I was right there standing one foot from the oven cooking dinner.  I was getting something out of the fridge with my back to the oven and I heard the oven door close... I turned around to see my two year old fleeing the kitchen lol.  I thought she had just been hanging on the handle as she does this sometimes when its not on and it opened accidentally a bit but nope 5 min later we smell melting wax....I opened the oven door to find melted green crayon all along the seal of the oven dripping everywhere.  Yes I realize its time for an oven lock and will be picking one up today.  The point of the post is I am looking for ideas as to how to get the crayon out of the seal of the oven its like cloth/metal mesh.  The good thing is the crayons are washables I got most of it out with paper towels while it was hot but its still embedded in that seal.. Before I take a brush and soap and water and make a worse mess any tips to get it out?
