So um, I'm not sure how it keeps getting dirty.
How do you clean something like this.
I use a lightly isopropyl alcohol-damped Q-Tip (not wet... if it drips when you squeeze it, it's too wet) and allow the cotton to scrub any grit off.
You can use compressed air to blow debris and other stuff out.
I've used cotton swabs and toothpicks to get all the muck and other stuff out of the ear piece, but for the headphone jack, try compressed air.
.....if you want to get creative.
People with issues of debris in the earpiece, speaker and mic. You might try turning your pockets out when washing you pants or jeans as well. Helps tremendously.
I'll try the pocket thing. But if it's getting stuck I the grill wouldn't you want to suck it out instead of blowing it in? Or pushing it in?
i have a foam/insulation ceiling in my room that has not even 8 ft ceilings (basement) and i keep a sewing needle, or pin stuck into it that i use to clean out cracks and crevices on my devices.
My son spilled ketchup (yes ketchup) in my ear piece. Still works, but pretty much useless. Nothing I've tried has cleaned it.
That makes no sense.
The ear piece works but the volume is so low (due to the spill) you can't really hear the caller unless you're in a very quiet place.
I've been forced to use my speaker phone for the past 9 months.
Ah gotcha. Bummer. Could try a BT headset too.
Might be better than speakerphone.
I want to revive this, i have very fine particles of fust and skin that are visibibly stuck, using a piece of paper works good, but i wish there were leas tiny crevices for debris to get in
try a small brush to clean out the earpiece grill
Apples website says to never use compressed air. I’m assuming on all ports but I wouldn’t use it on any of the grill covered ports.
This thread is OLD. You compressed air statement is a good one, never!
This is going to sound weird but get a qtip and dip it in super hot water. Not dripping but enough to soften the junk. After a few minutes, put your mouth over the grill and suck gently.
I know it’s weird and crazy but it works. Just keep softening and sucking. Should clear it up.
