    kind of a silly question but basically would it be ok to my 6s home button with a microfibre cloth and a tiny amount of windolene? I know windolene dries quickly like isopropanol?

    And push the button in and clean around the button at the same time?

    I usually use a cotton pad and put a little alcohol on it. It gets rid of the grease and it dries quickly.

    Thanks for the replies, my iPhone ocd is kicking off again, I thought I may have caused damage to the button / mechanism by cleaning around the button, it's just a phone .....

    I can't understand why would you need to clean the home button,is it creating trouble unlocking the iPhone

    Pretty expensive for "just a phone": more like a Star Trek communicator but way better. :) I do empathize with your concern.

    Thanks, so yeah the glass of the digitiser that surrounds the home button is what I can see, not dust, if I look an angle you can see the edge of the glass

    Thanks buddy :D seems funny isn't it, looks like you are worrying about a tiny stuff which actually hasn't any bad impact on the home buttono_O
