Foreign Object in Headphone Jack...

So, my girlfriend told me she thought something might have gotten into her headphone jack port - she lets her iPod float around in her purse when not in use. I took a look inside, but I couldn't tell if what I saw was a foreign object or what it was normally supposed to look like. If it was an object, it was deep, like in the thinner part of the plug. I poked a small safety pin in to try and release the object from the two spring-loaded sides but nothing fell out. I suspect she must have tried to plug her headphones in, but to ensure the thing got lodged, she said some jackass with an iPhone forced his headphones in and "got it working." The plug is NOT snug in the jack and if it's moved at all, the integrity of the stereo signal is lost and one or the other channel my cut out.

Bottom line... is there anything I can do, or should I just take it to the nearest Apple store?? I'm not really trying to take her iPod touch apart, although I've taken some iPods and iPhones apart to some degree.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike.
