See the outside lip of the overflow box? Well right on the inside there's another wall that I can't get anything down into.

A broom handle (or similar) wrapped in a rag with rubber bands to hold it is one option. For very narrow areas a bent clothes hanger (rounded corner) with paper towels banded to it may work. I've even used a rubber hose with paper towels or cloth wrapped around it to wipe up hard to get at places. Necessity is the mother of invention.
