Hi.

I have some dirt that i could not get rit of in the front ear speaker grill under front camera on my iphone 5.

Could i use a vacuum cleaner close up and suck it out or can it be harm/to tough for the phone?

Thanks for advice.

hehe would love to see a guy vacuuming its iphone and lost it into the vacuum at a gas station :)

I used a standard phillips 2400W vacuum cleaner that we use on the floors in the house.

I tryed to not get the vacuum tube to close at the speaker grill but suddenly the vacuum tube get stuck completely close onto the the earspeaker grill,

Hope not the Power was to mutch so it could be damaged, the grill is still there and its not loose or something, but i think maby the parts behind the grill dosent like the sucking power from the vacuum cleaner?

if it does not have anything to say then this is a very easy way to get it completely clean so that it looks new again :)

A vacuum would be nice but I doubt it's going to get the smaller ones on the mesh. In that case, use a cotton swab dabbed lightly in alcohol and rub it gently on the mesh.
