How do I get baking soda out of a heat vent?

My niece poured an entire box of baking soda in the heat vent and I have no clue how to get it out. Any ideas or help?

    You may be able to get some out with a vacuum. some may have already be caught by the filter. The rest isn't actually hurting anything where it is.

    Use a shop vac.

    Vacuum it out. Take the grille off if you can. But a good vac should suck most of it out anyway. The good news is baking soda is harmless.

    Vacuum cleaner hose may get some of it out.

    May need a heating engineer to partially remove the duct work to fully get it out, from what I've seen of central HVAC systems if it's something like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KC1GGNPj2Ls
