For hair grass I usually will set down and be ready for an 30min-1hr long process. you need to tear the bottom half of the rock wool right off. then break the clump into 1/4's this will let you work much easier with them. If you have a small set of tweezers this will help you genly remove the chunks of rock wool as well as a bowl of water helps to wash the wool off if you shake the bunch in it.
Try to remove the hairgrass "bunches" from the rockwool rather then trying to remove the big wool clumps from the hairgrass. you will destroy the roots if you try to be too forcefull.
