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.

I have not tried compressed air. What is that?
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.

Got this from Target...I'll let you guys know how it works.
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.

Doesn't any body go on Apple's website and read how to clean your iPhone and take care of your battery and such.

Just make sure to not blow to hard on the phone or it might fly out the window. True story.

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 ;)
