Tire tube that can be neither inflated nor deflated

Efficient way to clean a tire tube of that nasty paste inside it?

I have some tire tubes with a paste inside. They can be neither inflated nor deflated by pressing the nail of the valve stem core. The only way to deflate them is to unscrew these cores, introduce a thin stick through the hole where the core was and then move it up and down.

The problem is that there is no guarantee I will be able to fully inflate the tire after this operation. At some point the pump is no longer able to introduce air in the tube.

If I roll the tire while the valve stem core is out, like wanting to store it back in the box in which I bought it, then a lot of oily paste gets out of the tube. How can I wash the inside of the tube to get rid of all this paste.
