TL,
My suggestion would be what I do with my C. fasciatum. Carefully see if the top layer of substrate has webbing in it. If it does, you should be able to lift it up, much like a throw rug.

Peace,
Gillian

If you feed them small enough pieces/prey, there won't be much as far as remains go. I just had to move my entire group of Holley slings to new containers for that very reason. I fed them smooshed crickets that were too large and many of them had done the exact same thing you are talking about. Now they all have fresh, clean new homes... and full bellies.

normally the spider will take out the garbage on his/her own.
