Q-tip? Toothpick? Mini-vac? Garden hose?
Tape! Roll it around your finger inside out so it's double-sticky, stick the corner in there, and poof! you're clean as a whistle!
Thats a good idea! I just wedged a silk cloth in there and moved it around
Great, thanks! I was wondering how to get the dust out of there!
Just blow on it real hard. I usually blow it out once a day to prevent buildup, and I've had no problems.
No blowing, no sucking! (...like my wife.)
If you blow, you can blast debris under the screen. If you vacuum, you can suck in debris under the edge of the screen somewhere else- even on the opposite end of the phone.
-Just a theory, mind you, but as someone who does have dust under his screen, I do believe it can happen this way.
My 2 sense.
Nevermind then, ignore my comment.
That's what she sa.... Oh, wait. Wrong forum....
It's never the wrong forum for that, this is the Internet!
Can of compressed air. A blast or two cleans it right out
I'm guessing that causes the same problem that blowing on it does - pushing lint under the screen.
I've been wondering the same thing. Thanks!
the tape trick worked like a charm, used a flathead screwdriver to get it down in there, looks brand new again
i use a can of compressed air to blow it out. i don't get any dust under the screen though. i blast it quite a few times too. but the thing is it still doesn't really get everything out. i can see still see some leftovers. i think i'll try that tape thing out.
I use an air compressor, but that's because I have one handy.
The tape may begin to leave a sticky build up after a while.
I use the corner of one of my business cards. The mesh is tough enough to not be bothered by this.
FYI – The garden hose is more of a permanent solution. After one application, no need to worry about lint any more.
Let excessive ear wax build to the point where it seeps out and snatches the lint.
"Snatches"??? Wow... that's some aggressive ear wax!
