    The problem with poking things in there is that it can shove stuff in there tighter. The best thing I’ve ever found is poster putty. It goes into the holes without ever breaking off. When it comes out, all the pocket lint comes out with it.

    Don’t insert anything into the speaker grill holes. What I would do is get a soft bristle brush, and lightly use it in circles to remove any debris or use some canned air, but from a safe distance where it doesn’t damage any speaker internals.

    Is poster putty Blu-tak?

    I use the yellow poster stuff (maybe it’s the same? Idk.) I also use a can of compressed air with QUICK busts at an angle, just to make sure I don’t ruin the speaker

    I used to use a toothbrush on my 8 plus it worked well to remove dust from the holes!

    After watching the above Video, that is the only way I clean the speaker holes of all my iPhones and those of my family since over two years now :)
    Works like charm!

    I use canned air sprayed at an angle so not to damage the speakers. For the top speaker earpiece I used a piece of scotch tape to lift dust away.

    Not waterproof, it’s water resistant a very big difference...

    That sounds like a horrible idea using any type of putty, if any of that was lodged in the speaker holes, that would make a situation even worse.
