I had this problem and did something really similar - although I wanted to use the XWife's toothbrush it wasn't available. Did drink a few beers when finished though. I think every How To writeup should include a few beers as the necessary tools. Can we make this a forum rule?
Heres what I usually do..
Grab a beer or two and take my shoes off (clean socks are recomended) and open the sun roof, stand on the seats with my upper half sticking out. (do this in the driveway, never on the freeway) and clean the channels and all the areas in the sunroof cavity real good... get all the dead leaves, bugs and homeless people out of there.
With the doors open grab a measuring up or a water bottle (anything you can pour water slowly and controlled with) and pour water through the drain holes while observing the drain points by the doors. (black rubber grommet looking things near the hinges). The water should drain freely. If water doesnt drain out then you have an obstructed drain tube. Get yourself an air compressor and blow some air through the clogged tubes from the bottom up. Dont go all crazy with the PSI, your not trying to inflate the Goodyear Blimp, just trying to blow out whatever you got jammed in there. Do the water test again, if its still not draining try blowing it out from the top down and re-test.
Keeping the sunroof area clean from debris will help keep your sunroof from leaking so dont be affraid to get up in there with a shop vac and your wifes toothbrush to keep it clean (dont use your own toothbrush cause you gotta put that thing in your mouth and thats just gross).
Finish off the rest of your beers and be sure to laugh at all the jokers who get dripped on when it rains for not spending the 10 min cleaning their drain tubes.
