    I have a white 3G and got a large bloodstain on the back (which I didn't notice until after it dried.) I have tried wiping it off with a warm damp towel but to no avail. Any suggestions on a safe cleaner to remove the blood?

    I'd suggest a very small amount of isopropyl alcohol. I do stress that it is a SMALL amount applied directly to a cloth. The remainder should evaporate quickly and/or be dried off with a dry cloth. I've known plenty of people who have done this with no ill effects.

    NOT ALCOHOL - it will denature the proteins in the blood and mage it harder to clean up. Careful, avoiding joints/openings where liquids could penetrate the case, a bit of hydrogen peroxide on a paper towel or cotton swab.

    In the future, it would be wise to shave with a RAZOR.

    Or leave the iPhone at home when you go out on a murdering spree.

    Try the magic eraser. It's magic! It should help.

    How the hell did you get a blood stain on your phone? It had to be asked.
