    Ok, so I had gotten some vinegar and and mayo on my hands after eating, and I wiped it off with a napkin, but when I went to charge my phone, I accidentally got some on the charger as I plugged it in which may have gotten it into the Lightning connector in my iPhone. Will this be bad for it and cause corrosion of the pins inside?

    This might not be popular but i recommend selling the phone without any warnings and just let nature handle it, better luck next time to the poor new owner.

    you're right about it not being popular, it's scummy and unethical.

    Just take a toothbrush with rubbing alcohol 90% or higher and brush in there with that.

    I'd suspect that the applicable answers would be more or less along the lines of most of those relating to things that were covered in your other threads:
    Small oil amount in speaker
    Sweat possibly in lightning port
    Oil on power button
    Clorox wipe near lightning port
    Got water in volume buttons
    Milk in speaker?
    Moisture in iPhone calling speaker
    Accidentally got moisture on lightning cablehat
    Sweat on iPhone mute switch
    Sweat on Lightning cable

    It's probably more along the lines of what's brought up in another thread: How to stop being OCD about iPhone?

    I am deeply disturbed by all the threads this person has created regarding getting substances on their Apple devices. Definitely a troll.

    I'm not a troll. Why would I waste time by making up scenarios and posting them on this website? What do I get from that? I've even tried to stop posting about things that happen to it for a while as my last one was in June and plenty of things have happened to it that I didn't post.

    Presumably the Keurig forums sufficed in the interim. Lots can happen to those things.

    I'd recommend buying a cheap used phone that is pre-scratched. That way you don't worry about damaging it.

    Hopefully, the next time you purchase a device it's defective.
