How to clean out axle tubes

This might be a dumb question but here it goes.

I am changing out my front u-joints for the first time. When I pulled the front axle out, I noticed that the axle tube is packed full of dirt. Is there a good way to clean it out? I don't want to push all the crud into the oil seal or the differential when I put the axle back in.

Also, Is it good practice to change the differential fluid after having the axles out?

Thanks
Scott

Im not sure about cleaning them out, but I would do a oil change after you reinstall the axles. You never know what might get pushed back into the diff
