Lint in pocket tabs! Help!! Snaps!!!

While hanging my precious pocket diapers I noticed that inside the snap area tab has collected some lint/debris. How can I get this out? How can I prevent this in the future? These are snap diapers not Velcro. Any tips or tricks?!?

I have turned them inside out and used a very fine crochet hook to dig in and get the lint out...

I would use chop sticks as I don't have crochet anything. Our I would use my kirby to suck them out with air.

I've opened up/turned inside out the pocket and tab as much as possible and used tweezers to remove lint. Just a side effect of regular washing and having an opening into the tab .
