    I have used toothbrushes, toothpicks, even the little tiny screwdrivers, as long as you use a gentle touch so as to not harm the small designs on the wood should work.

  • You might want to use a stripper, like CitriStrip, with a toothbrush.

    I have used a sandpaper wrapped awl to fit into small spaces; sometimes a small screwdriver depending on the space involved.

    I will probably be in the minority here, but, I use a very soft scrub brush for detailed areas. It works. Try inexpensive ones like the dollar store has, since they won't be very stiff and it's something you can toss.
