Depends how long the device has been liquid damaged for.

The worst thing you can do is try charging the device or powering it on.

You will need to disassemble the device as much as you can, and clean everything with 99.9% isopropyl alcohol, and a toothbrush, this is a DIY repair.

If you're not comfortable with taking it apart, take it to a shop that deals in liquid damage repair, they should use a ultrasonic cleaner to clean up liquid damaged logic boards etc. :-)

Thanks wasn't sure if that worked for oil or not it had been sitting with the oil in it for a year.


A year is an extremely long time! It works with pretty much most things.
