How do I clean my iPhone’s headphone socket?

My nephew got some clay putty stuff in my iPhone’s headphone socket. What’s the safest way to clean it?

Hold it upside down and try and cotton bud with some cleaning alcohol (or Vodka if you wish). When I say upside down it's just so that no liquid drops into the internals.
If it really can't be cleaned, does it work at all?
If not you can buy the headphone component here for not a lot and replace it yourself (Warranty and technical nouse notwithstanding of course)

I don't think I have any of that technical nouse :p But I DO have a bottle of Vodka.
