    So long story short, I had a night of fun last night and my drink ended up all over my droid. It works fine, no issues, but its really sticky and the slider gets stuck. It also REEKS of pineapple skyy and monster. Anyone know any good ways to clean it up? Mainly safe ways?

    I would try rubbing alcohol, I'm pretty sure that's what your suppose to use because it evaporates. Just dip a q-tip in some and turn your Droid off before you do it.

    And why would someone in the 8th grade be consuming alcohol? Haha

    Meh, I guess I was just pounding whatever I could when I was in 8th grade (or all throughout high school for that matter). Luckily we didn't have cell phones to get f'd up at that point :)

    Also you could an electrical contact cleaner, comes in an aeresol can and comes with a small tube to use in the small orifice's. We have a bunch around my work. Dispenses less liquid out then the use of a q-tip IMO!

    Another quick question...
    I have a red Verizon case for it and I discovered that's sticky as well. Will the alcohol ruin the paint?

    Nope. Alcohol isn't a solvent. It's what's used to clean off LCD screens, in fact! Just don't go putting any nail polish remover (acetone) on anything plastic, and you'll be fine. :eek:

    I have an interesting story about learning of acetone's dissolving powers, actually, but that's for another day. :D

    Alcohol is most definitely a solvent. It won't harm the plastic itself, but if it's paint on plastic you could have some troubles.

    Why not just wash the case with soap and water and let it dry?

    I ended up doing the water on the case. I just considered the alcohol cuz it takes care of the smell

    kyleonfire -- you may be onto something... scented cellphones? I can just see a small display set up in Verizon, loaded with fancy glass vaporizors, just for us over-the-top cellfanatics. DroidBeach scent... DroidPineapple... DroidCandyApple...

    When I was in the eighth grade, we had one phone. And it had a long twisty cord. Attached to a wall. And one ringtone. And that ringtone sounded like..., well, a phone.

    Why is it so impossible to actually find a cool phone, such as the Droid, and have it come with a ring tone that sounds like a "phone"? I mean this thing has like 30+ "ring tones" and most of them are either fake rap beats or "hardcore" metal beats. :confused:

    I guess they think we might have the sudden urge to spit a freestyle, yo.

    Clean up alcohol with alcohol? :D

    If the soap and water didn't get rid of the smell, wash it again. If it still smells like pineapple, test a hidden area of the case with rubbing alcohol to see if it will do anything to the finish.

    Just DL'd it, I'll check it out, thanks. I actually have the "Filet'o'Fish" song set as my ring tone. I get a huge laugh everytime I hear it, and those around me are always like WTF? :D

    I'm going to hazard a guess that it didn't smell like pineapple afterwards.

    It's a solvent, but it's not a very strong one. I really don't see it affecting painted plastic, that has NEVER happened to me before and I clean most everything with isopropyl alcohol.

    I dropped mine in a Banana cream pie Blizzard from DQ...:(. It was in my lap and it slipped off right into the cupholder where the blizzard was while I was driving. I was non too pleased. I licked off what I could until I got home lol. I cleaned it with rubbing alcohol. Man was I pissed hah. Luckily, it works just fine/
