    My phone got really sticky for some apparent reason, so put three drops of water to clean it, to be safe. Then I realized I put soap too, and when I turned my phone on, the screen was slightly blue. What's the fix?

    Don't use blue soap.
    Next time use glass cleaner.

    I wouldn't use glass cleaner either. Glass cleaner contains ammonia and can sometimes do bad joo joo to screens on electronics. You should use a solution made for electronic devices.

    Dunno what you did, honestly.

    Just don't submerse your iPhone for longer than 60 seconds...

    Or better yet, stick it in the washer with the whites.
    Don't use blue detergent though, screen might turn blue:D

    I just make sure I don't forget my phone when I go for a car wash. Two birds, one stone.

    I use facial wipes to clean my gadgets. Have done for years and have not suffered any adverse effects.

    Just wipe it gently with a microfiber cloth. Soap leaves some residuals on a surface and it may looks greenish/bluish/whatever depending on the light and angle.

    It should come off. I still have a good deal of the iKlean kit spray and I use that if I get something substantial on the phone. Usually it's me touching my phone with grubby ass hands while eating chicken wings. No lie.

    I'm not even sure what it means for the screen to turn slightly blue? like a faint transparent blue or what? Can you still see the contents of your screen without any distortion?
