I was able to remove it for the time being by filling a 60mL syringe 
with hot water and injecting it into the faucet. I had disconnected the 
faucet line and then used the syringe's plunger to rapidly cycle the 
water back and forth. It seems to have worked for the time being, but 
I'll probably have to do it frequently to avoid the buildup.

Thanks for the reply.
