Get (no less than 92%) clear alcohol and try flushing it with one of those rubber bulb ear syrenges. You'll need to remove the jack to do this, otherwise you could fill up your phone with alcohol (bad). A fine tip art brush may help. Don't use a Q-Tip, just like ears, it pushes and packs the grime in.

...then again, if you have to take the jack out, may as well just put in a new one.

If you try this, it is at your own risk.
