Default [Q] Get Dust Out of Speaker Holes?

Does anyone have a good method of cleaning out the tiny holes for the speakers? I have a few filled up with particulate and was wondering on the best way to clean them out.

A pin maybe? Or a little vacuum for keyboards?

I work in a machining environment, we have renishaw cleaning tack (its for CMM probe tips). Works great, I pull metal shaving out of mine daily

Also note that not all holes go all the way through.

If you look close, a little less than half of the holes(on right side) on both the upper and lower grills are merely cosmetic and don't go all of the way through.
