Hatch Lip seal channel

I've made my hatch lips using the One Ocean Kayak method that looked so easy on Ross and Spidey's websites, the process seems to be going well. I used 1/8 X 3/8 neoprene gasket as a mold for the channel and will use 1/4 X 3/8 or 3/8 X 3/8 neoprene for my seal. The question that I have is, how do I get all the foam bits out of the channel in the lip? I've scraped most of the foam out but have a layer stuck to the epoxy. Should I have used a release agent of some sort, do I just need to use more elbow grease, or is there an easy way to remove the residual foam?
