How do I clean the inside of my screen?

I spilled an alcoholic cocktail on my iphone, and miraculously the phone still works (I did this 3 months ago), but it dried inside my phone, and now my screen appears mottled. If I disassemble my phone, can I just clean the back of the panel, or should I buy a new one? If I can clean the back of the panel, what would I clean it with?

to clean, you want to use 100% alcohol. its called isopropyl alcohol... you get it in any good hardware store, radioshack? can someone point him at the right place? i am not familiar with shops in US...

just wet the cloth and wipe it off. let it dry, carefully assemble and let us know, if success...

Yes, pretty much any isopropyl alcohol over 70% will work, available in most department stores as well as grocery stores and pharmacies. Good luck


If you can't find a cheap isopropyl, a good 90 proof Vodka will fill the bill. and you can drink the left overs.


Oh yeah, my kind of cleaning solution :)


So you guys don't think it'll strip the back of the screen of any coatings?


I have not stripped any coating. Just never apply it directly. Just like palokiller pointed out, wet the cloth and wipe down the screen. I don't think you will have to leave it on that long, just wipe it off.
