Cleaning the firewall

Hey all long time between efforts on this.

Question? I’ve cleaned the engine bay with degreaser, and will do that another dozen or so times to get it as clean as possible. I wondered about the built up crusty stuff around the Openings between the engine bay and the interior it looks like a sealer. What is the best way to remove this? Also is it ok to use oven cleaner to degrease the engine bay?
