I’ve been using a sewing needle to gently try and get things like that out… I’m not sure if its the best way/ safest…. But it works better than a toothpick- which seems to just jam it down further.

You could try a very soft tooth brush or maybe even a can of air.

Best thing for cleaning electronic equipment, especially in tight places (such as the speaker holes on your iPhone) is a can of NINJA.
You can buy it for $7 (US) from

Take some thing like a cheese cloth and just get a little alcohol on it and rub. My techs at Sprint use it all the time. Just dont drench the cloth or phone just enough to break up the gook.
