    Does anyone clean their iPhone? Do you clean the case it's in?

    I am a crazy hand washer and I can't stand not cleaning my phone when I come home from shopping. I didn't have a screen protector or case on my old blackberry so I use to take alcohol swabs and totally wipe down my blackberry. Now with a screen protector and a gelli casemate case I dont really know if I can do anything. It drives me nuts touching my phone at home when I have been out earlier shopping and touching my phone.

    I take mine out of my Otterbox defender about 2-3 times a week and wipe it down really good with a lint free cloth as well as the inside and outside of the defender.

    I take my phone out of it's leather case periodically and rub it down with a microfiber cloth. I haven't cleaned the case yet, it hasn't gotten dirty.

    X2 to this. i use it and it always does a great job. I also go on eBay and buy screen covers by the bulk and replace the screen cover every couple months. I rarely take my phone from its Speck case though, thing is as safe as can be in there so need to worry about its backside.

    Does anyone know if you use canned air (Dust Off) in the docking connector slot or the headphone jack, if the air will blow the dust deep into the phone or under the screen where you can't get it back out?

    i used canned air on my last night and regularly for that matter. its easy for lint from your pockets to get jammed up into the docking connector or stuck to the microphone/speaker screens on the bottom. I usually just hit them with canned air at an angle to blow off the lint. If you do this regularly then you dont risk getting so much stuff stuck in there.

    Take it out of the case once a week and clean or screen protector clean every so often.
