    Between the glass and the plastic outer area of my 4s, I recently noticed some dirt. And some dirt in the area around my home button. How do I clean this dirt from out of the edges?

    I work around flour all day so I always see that. I just use a piece of paper to lift it up then I blow on it.

    Can be bought at most places. Target. Best buy. Where ever. It is just a can of air under pressure used for cleaning electronics. Such as keyboards etc. Go to a store ask for a can of air.

    hope this isn't too late, but just be careful to not turn the can on it's side or upside down when you use it. A not so friendly blast of very cold gas will come out, not just 'air'.
    But you would have to spray it for a few seconds like that for it to really do anything.

    DO NOT USE COMPRESSED AIR! Lol I'm serious though. Air has humidity in it and when you blast the phone u may very well blast h2o into. And rubber alcohol will definitely take the oleo-phobic coating off the screen. Apple even says to not even use windex. Take a piece of paper edge or a candy rapper to pick it out don't mess with that beautiful white phone.

    Actually I haven't, but I would if needed. I mean don't dump the entire can non stop. A short little burst here and there surely isn't going to hurt it I wouldn't think.
    Hand raised then I guess ;)
