My first suggestion is to get the phone to a repair shop to have it opened and properly cleaned in an ultrasonic cleaner or good DIY Alcohol bath if you are comfortable with taking the phone apart.

Losing the home button at this point is one of your least worries... power off your phone and do not power it back on or charge it until it is cleaned... then we can get into answering any questions about getting your home button repaired if possible.

Respond back if you have the tools and ability to take it apart for detailed instructions...
