I usually just take a tooth brush and soapy water and gently clean the dirt out. The seals only come out during an actual disassembly of the fork.

forks have 2 seals.. Dust seals and the oil seals.. And the dust seals can come out without disassembly.

You should be able to use a small screwdriver to pry them out.

Some of you folks need to learn you don't have to answer questions you don't have a clue about the answer. You should be able to remove the dust seal/wiper simply by putting a screwdriver between the wiper and the top of the fork and working it down. Then you can spray contact cleaner or whatever other method you desire to clean the stuck dirt away from the oil seal.
