    Any way I could clean the inside of the ring/silent switch of my iPhone? It's getting pretty dirty and it's been bugging me lately.
    Thanks :apple:

    Fold a business card diagonally with the crease going to one of the corners. Repeat three more times per business card. :)

    I cleaned my lock button with a q tip and rubbing alcohol as it was getting sticky. You should be able to do the same with the mute switch.

    This.

    I use the plastic toothpick from a Swiss Army knife and a small microfiber cloth dampened with a tiny bit of isopropyl alcohol. Use the toothpick to push the microfiber into the small spaces and gently scrub.
