Something stuck in my iPhone 5's charger port?

Today my headphone jack on my iphone wasnt working so i decided to put in a bag of rice in case i got some water in it. This worked fine but then i took it out of the bag and there was a piece of rice lodged in the little charger port right next to the headphone jack. I tried getting it out with toothpicks but no such luck. Does anyone have any other ideas? Currently now i cannot charge my iphone, as the cord wont go in far enough (and i dont want to push the rice further in)

Try tweezers? You could always just take it to the store and have them fix it/
