Remove bits of a red rubber gasket?

I've got an old glass carboy lid with a crack. At some point, a previous owner put a red rubber gasket (like the kind Ball made for canning jars) to add some cushion between the lid and carboy lip. I know it's not original but left it in place. The rubber has crumbled so I decided to pull it off, and I discovered that some bits of it are stuck on the lid. I've tried gently scraping with a knife but it's not all off.

With the crack in the lid, I'm reluctant to try hot water or strong chemicals. Any ideas?
