Some calcium chloride solution leaked from the inner tube into the rim. There are some pretty good chunks of iron oxide stuck to the tube. Would like to remove these chunks before the wheel is reassembled.
What are some of the techniques used to remove these chunks?
Since the tubes are out of the tire, a variety of techniques could be used.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

I pumped my tubes up, laid them on a comfortable height working surface and picked away. Quite comfortable leaning on the tube and getting a suntan. :)
There was a LOT of rust!

I used a dull knife, some very large grit flooring sandpaper, and other sandpaper whatever worked.

Close inspection will tell you if the integrity of the rubber has been compromised or not.

Anyway, five years later and I've never had to add air.
Knowing me, if I had put two new tubes in I wouldn't want to have thrown these old ones away so they would be taking up space forever. Then again they would be fun for the kids at the beach

or for making a raft. :)

Same as others posted, clean the expensive parts: tires and rims. Get a new tube, especially if you are loading them.

I've spent the time to pick it off with a dull knife and fingernails but it takes patience and time.

Probably better off buying a new tube.

Farmerhr, I have experienced this. Those little chunks have already dug into and thinned the tube. It won't last long. Spend your time going carefully over the inside of your tire with plenty of light, so that you don't lose the new tube.

No easy way .....at least none I found. I picked big chunks off one at a time. Used a scraper and sand paper. It wasn't perfect but it's holding air. Oliver 77 that doesn't have to work for a living! Lol.

I would just bite the bullet and buy a new tube. Why did the tube leak?

What R Geiger said and then spend your time cleaning up the RIMS...
