The best way may be to use a child's paintbrush. If you push the dry bristles under the jammed key and then slide them along to the edge of the keypad you should be able to dislodge whatever is under the key.

I clean the whole keypad every few weeks with a brush slid along under the keys. You'd be amazed how much dust, etc. comes out.

BTW, some laptop keys are designed to pull off and be pushed back, but I've always regarded that as a last kill-or-cure resort.
