    Lightbulb Which household cleaners 'get along' with the Pearl

    Advertisement



    Hello everyone, I was wondering what types of household cleaners people have used on their pearls, and if it was a success or if it was destructive.

    I've used Isopropyl 91% Alcohol and a cotton ball on everything including lightly on the screen and the keys. I probably won't use it again (because I think it's probably a bit abrasive lol) but the oil build up from two weeks was just gross and it's all I had. I'm not looking to spend any money JUST on cleaning it, and I've heard of using applesauce products. So I'm wondering what everyone else is using.

    Thanks!

    Acetone and Bleach...

    Not really. what I use it usually just one of those lint clothes or a moist paper towel.Also, a time or two I used some of the stuff that is made for laptop screens/flat screen tv screens, etc. Worked pretty well..But then again, I don't baby my berries as much as some people do, but it does do the job.

    Working in a service center I have learned that most techs will use denatured alcohol to clean the phones.

    sandpaper.... yep, heavy grit sandpaper is the way to go...

    I suppose you could use a little mild soap dilluted in a lot of water....

    but seriously... go with like a 40-60 grit sandpaper... that will get rid of the gunk...

    I use the things that you use for laptops cameras or eye glasses too. It comes in small packets. Looks like a hand wipe when you eat at Tony Romas or Red Lobster (now I'm hungry =(. Works really well for me.

    Those little pads do good, but a good pumice stone, now there's clean!

    on a serious note, i use sunglass cleaner stuff (the stuff in the little aluminum bottles at sunglass hut) or computer screen cleaners (comes in little wet-nap looking packs). The computer screen cleaner stuff works good and takes away the grease for awhile.

    But i also have the bestskinsever, so it's more or less just cleaning the outer skin than actually cleaning the case.

    Awesome. I figured alcohol was too abrasive... but it worked great, and left my phone feeling really grippy and new. I'll pick up a bottle of denatured next time I'm out - Thanks for the tip!

    Use diluted isopropanol (30 to 50 volume %). it should be more safer
