Cleaning out the vaccum holes in the table

What is the best stuff to use for cleaning out the holes in the table for the vacuum? Instead of poking the holes out I'd like to just put some solvent on the table and let it soak in.

aluminum tops can delaminate, and pressboard tops with arborite can let loose or swell.
You are better to systematically work a small area with a solvent rag, the carefully poke the blockage through with a small object with the vacuum running.
In some cases, where it is years of caked up gunk, you may need to drill it out.
Be carefull not to scratch or marr the surface, this will show on thin stocks or with tranparent inks.
