What's the best way to clean the underside of a push mower?


I've had problems with things gunking up after cutting wet and even not-so-wet grass. Then I get a crust of old grass growing mold down there and I can tell it's cutting down the efficiency of the mower. If I flip the mower over to clean it the gas starts leaking out, so I have to prop the stupid thing up on a table or something. Is there a better way? And what tools are best for dislodging that grass without damaging the mower?
