How do I get whatever is stuck in my cd slot out?

Somehow I believe that something became stuck in my Macbook's CD slot, and now it wont read disks. My warranty just ran out, and I really do not want to have to take it in and get it fixed. Is there a way I can open up the laptop and/or get into where I can see into the slot? Please help!!

Also the superdrive itself can be opened very easily by removing - I think - four screws.
