    I was chewing gum in my bed before i went to sleep. I woke up and noticed that the gum was on the bed. I then noticed i had left on my iphone on the bed and the gum is stuck to the screen and most of the edge of it. My iphone screen has gum stuck on most of the screen.

    How do i get rid of the gum on the screen? I been using myfingers to get gum on of the screen and it does not help at all. Basically the screen looks like gum all over it and also the sides of it as well. My iphone case is still on it etc.

    Basically right now you see gum residue all over the iphone SE screen as it seemed i made it worst by trying to rip the gum out from the screen.


    Thanks.

    Grim. Get some laptop/phone screen cleaner (Dr Magic or something similar), spray it over the phone, then scrub it out using a microfibre cloth. That'll do the trick.

    Put ice in plastic bag, place bag on screen?

    You should take a picture and post it if possible. I would be interested in seeing your predicament. KeysofAnxiety made the best suggestion.

    Just use isopropyl solution. Spray some on a cloth and wipe.

    Hey all i used a wipe on the iphone and the glue seems to be out of there.

    My clear case however still has a bit of gum. Would you suggest using something else for that?

    You can try putting it in the freezer for a couple of hours. That will make the gum brittle and should come off easily. Also WD-40 will clean off most anything.
