Removing lemon slices out of small neck jars after use

I purchased the hermetic water bottles that Bea uses to infuse with lemon slices.  Does anyone know how to remove the lemon slices and "what not" in the bottles after use?  Also, how do you clean the bottles ?  Does anyone have a suggestion?  Thanks!

Hi - Bea cuts her lemon slices in half and squeezes them as she puts them into the bottles.   Typically we will use the slices for several refills of water - but once the lemon looks a bit aged, it will typically just slide out (maybe a bit of a shake will help).

cheers - Scott

I have kept a supply of SS chopsticks and fondue forks, either of which would work for this purpose, in case you have similar items on hand. Found the chopsticks at Asian food store and used regularly as beverage stir rods as well as for impromptu whisks. They're not sharp so cannot spear things, but would likely work on a limp bit of lemon.
