Cleaning Cal Kit Components

In a previous post I was looking for replacement loads for my 85032B Cal Kit. I found what I was looking for but they have been stored for some time in the cal kit box and are filled with decomposed foam that was used to line the box.

The decomposed foam is sticky and cannot be blown or brushed away - it simply ***** up into a bigger, stickier mess. Yes, I know the manual says to use compressed air and isopropyl alcohol but this assumes ordinary daily cleaning. What about heavy cleaning of decomposed, sticky foam?

Should I soak the components in isopropyl alcohol or is there a better chemical? Or, should I not use any chemicals at all? 

Any constructive advise will be appreciated.....
