I got sand in the fold of my Z Flip 3, and now my phone won't lay completely flat. How can I clean the particles out?

I accidentally dropped mine onto the beach and of course got sand onto it
Thing I did was first of all before I folded the phone
Got a bottle of water to gently trickle water over the phone and got as much off as possible.
Then use tissue paper to dry water out of the hinge area. Water getting drawn out the sand comes with it.
Some very fine particles still got in.
Was a touch crunchy folding it for a few times, but it's all good now.

Thing is to clean it before folding it. If you didn't, once the sand gets in. You have no way of cleaning it out

I wondered if using an air aerosol can remove the sand . Usually used for dust removal

Have to be careful, as the force of the air coming out of those can force fine grains of sand passed the seals

I'd be tempted to try a reasonably soft toothbrush (unused one of course), if compressed air is too strong then a camera puffer?
