Plumbers putty removal


We had a granite top and a black stone sink installed in our kitchenette. I installed the black strainer and disposal rings. I used non-staining plumbers putty under the rings. The putty that squeezed out around the strainers is a light color and is very noticeable. After I removed the excess putty around each strainer a small amount remained in the groove around the outside edge of each strainer. How can I remove the small amount down in the grooves?

If you don't already have one, go buy a box of wooden toothpicks or bamboo skewers. Very handy for getting into little crevices like that.
