Title:

Home Button Unresponsive After Water Damage?

Text:

My Iphone 6 had recently suffered water damage. The water damage came from an accidental drop into the pool. I did the rice trick and after about 5 days it worked. But, the home button doesn't work. However, it does respond after a few minutes. I have done my research and am recently trying an alcohol trick. I used a cotton ball with a dab of rubbing alcohol and pressed on my home button with a circular motion. I was told that the rubbing alcohol dries up the water, therefore contributing to my thoughts of clearing up any leftover water damage. After this, I have chosen to put it in rice for another day. Any ideas on what I could do, if this doesn't work, without going on the inside of the Iphone?
