Blowby on injectors - the cleaning process

Hi guys,

So I have blowby on injectors 3 and 4. Managed to get 1,2,3 out but 4 is stuck. I want to sort out the first three before running engine again to heat up injector 4 so it's easier to remove. I've rigged up a handheld Hoover with a hose attachment to get down in to chamber to clean, and have used a wire brush attachment on my drill to clean up the top where the clamps sit, with a penny blocking the chamber. My questions is how have people cleaned the chambers the injectors sit in without having carbon deposits etc falling down the hole at the bottom?? Have people used plugs to block hole, if so what have you used? I have a tool to recut the seats, and I have a set of new washes from Alfa, but currently cannot get the tool down the chamber due to carbon deposit build up. Any help would be much appreciated guys
