Removing dirt between pulley splines

Any suggestions for removing the dirt in between the pulley splines? I've tried using Q-tips with minimal success. Would compressed air for electronic parts be a good options?

I would spray down with APC and then use your Qtips then when dry I would spray the pulley with In & Out Spray just don't spray it on the belt surface.

Not taking anything away from Adams here... an off the shelf product I used in a pinch was Gunk engine degreaser and all of that is gone now. Just be sure you do not soak the electronics and if you have an exposed filter, bag it, but don't forget to remove the bag...

My SS is a daily driver and the dirt in the pulley was a real pain to get out. I ended up getting a billet pulley that I can easily wipe off to keep clean.

I have that same pulley but had to take it off when I had the belt walk off the front twice. I suppose it was a slight alignment problem but haven't worked on it yet. The first time was during an oil change when I discovered it had moved forward about two rows.

Now I'm back to cleaning the OEM pulley with my lug nut brush.
