Any tips on how to safely clean this gum residue??
Where'd you buy it?
And please use tIMG tags!
I'd suggest rubbing alchohol on a q-tip.
I can not be held liable for any damages done to your iPhone by following my suggestion.
Dissolve with acid.
Alcohol should be fine. Not beer though.
if you are from the UK (or another country that uses the same name), a q-tip is a cotton bud
No joke, the stuff works. I'd use a needle to scrape the gum out of the screw hole after you put a little bit of Goo Gone in their with a Q-Tip or something.
Just be careful as it might damage the glossy finish.
I would have said acetone, but that would really destroy the plastic.
Use the magic eraser.
VERY GOOD POINT!
In fact, I wouldn't use Goo Gone.
UPDATE: Goo gone worked great! Just used a small dab and quickly wiped with a soft cloth.
I wouldn't use Goo Gone more than once; it degrades plastic over time.
Isopropyl alcohol next time. It will take longer, but it's long-term better on the plastic.
lol i got "goo" on my coffee table and my mom used googone on it and it took off all the layers of stain and varnish, ruining my table.
i would of had to restain my entire living room table sets to fix it and um.... i fixed it with covering the table with a doiley or however its spelled lol.
glad it worked for you though.
