Best Way To Clean Out The Otterbox Defender

Just bought my otterbox defender and I love it. Only thing is I can't find anyone or anything on google that has tried cleaning out the inside of the case by either running some water on it or what. I'm not sure if it'll ruin the film membrane or something of that sort.

Basicly I just want to know what people do to clean theirs out. A microfiber cloth just doesn't cut it for getting in all the nooks and crannies.

Thanks in advance for any tips and advice.

I use dishwashing liquid to wash the rubber part by hand. A damp microfiber cloth and a little rinse with tap water for the hard shell..
Mine's over a year old and going strong. Saved the phone quite a few times.

I'm just disappointed that dirt can get all the way inside on such a heavily built case when my Speck Candyshell manages to keep the dirt from getting in behind the case.

All they would have to do is use something to put a seal around the open holes so that dirt may get on the open areas but would not be able to get deep inside the case where it can cause damage.

I remove the phone and use soap and water to clean the rubber and plastic parts of the case. Dry them, add a dash of baby powder to the inside of the clear screen protector and reassemble.

Thanks for all the responses. I was just trying to figure out if it was safe to use some soap and water on it and I guess it is. thanks again
