    Default What's the best way to clean the iPhone 4 speakers
    I've an iPhone 4 and I use an Otterbox Defender case. It protects the phone very well, but there are two holes for the speakers and they look kind of dirty. What is the best way to clean them, since I don't want to use any liquid in the holes. I try to clean them regularly with a Q-Tip. They are not that dirty btw. But I would like to keep them clean.

    On an off topic note, the bottom flap on the Otterbox Defender sucks. It's not firm like on the 3G or 3Gs. Hopefully they will correct that with the new cases. Glad they fixed the belt clip where you know the phone is secure since you will hear it "click" in.

    I use the tiny brush that came with an old electric razor. Works great. Also cleans pocket lint from the dock connector.

    Alcohol is more suitable clean, scissors may occur if unavoidable accidents.

    I just use a toothpick, thin enough to get all the stuff that collects in the speakers rounded edges and soft enough to not leave any marks.

    It's not like the dirt is caked in. It just looks kinda spotty. I'll try the q-tip with a bit of alcohol. I don't want to drench it and mess something inside up.

    Thanks.

    Alcohol as long as its close to 100 percent won't hurt electronics still probably good not to drench it tho.
