jennie, here is what Apple suggest:" Follow these steps to use your iPhone without a wireless service plan:

Insert the SIM card from your new, activated iPhone or one that was previously used to activate the original iPhone.

Connect the iPhone to iTunes on a computer connected to the Internet.

Once iTunes activates the device, you're free to use the iPhone as if it were an iPod touch.

Additional Information

Note: It may be necessary to repeat this process after updating or restoring the device." from here

Not sure about cleaning your iPhone. If you mean physically clean, I would suggest to stay away from any chemicals, other than isopropyl alcohol :) Hope this helps, good luck.
