Cleaning CPR overflow

I have a CPR cs102 setup on 75g tank, over time the overflow has accumulated a ton of feather dusters and even worse white sponge that is starting to limit flow into the sump. I tried to clean with a flexible drain cleaner and RO tubing (bent) but could not totally clean it. I think it is starting to affect flow in the sump as well. Any other tricks/tools to use to clean it while on the tank?

not looking to change to a different overflow at this point though

Thanks a lot

A vinegar soak off the top of my head. The tank can run some time without it.
A baby bottle cleaner MIGHT work if you bend it. CPR's are a PITA.

I have an eshopps and remove it from the tank to clean every 6 months. Are you trying to clean the CPR while it's still on the tank?
