    I've used rubbing alcohol on some plastic pieces on cars before.
    Sometimes it worked great, and don't use it on the plastic bezel oner the instrument panels gages!!

    I wonder if you should use denatured alcohol?
    I also wonder what % for rubbing alcohol?

    I've used denatured and rubbing alcohol with similar results; if I remember correctly the denatured was slightly more effective, but as was posted in the comments section of the article, it IS a solvent and if exposed for too long things could start coming apart, particularly the camera's seals. I've also had good luck with distilled water- I've recovered a handful of devices this way. Personally, I think the key to success depends on how quickly the battery can be removed more than anything else.

    Alcohol is what we used to clean phones, but as the last poster said the
    Big key is to first remove the power source(battery) and then to get the
    Device apart and dry asap

    so far denatured alcohol work the best, but like all the other said it depend on how fast ppl pull out the battery.
