I've got a 6cyl fairmont and the spark plug holes are dirty with sand etc

How do you guys clean it out?

If I used a brush and poked it down the spark plug hole shaft, I'm afraid it will push all the dirt deeper into the hole.

I just use a bit of rag soaked with WD40, stretch it over my finger and scrape as much out as I can that way.
