How to properly clean smartphone speakers without damaging it
Cleaning smartphone speakers with a soft brush
This is probably the best and safest way to remove dirt from your phone’s speakers. Using a brush with soft bristles (a small paintbrush) should be ideal for the job.
It is also good to cut the bristles to half-way.
Now gently brush across the speaker from bottom to top, moving across the length of the long, thin speaker several times.
For the speaker at the bottom of the phone, try inserting the soft bristles into holes and wiggle the brush.
Cleaning with a toothpick
You should be careful with this one. It is only a good idea if you use it on the speaker at the bottom of the smartphone.
Use a toothpick or the sharp point of a small plastic stick to remove stuck debris from the speakers. Slowly, use minimal pressure to tilt the toothpick until whatever is sticking in there comes out.
Using masking tape to clean smartphone speakers
This is also a good method to wipe your smartphone’s speakers. It leaves no residue. Stick small bits the masking tape (painter’s tape) on top of the speakers and then lift — for the speaker on the phone’s screen.
For the speakers at the bottom of the phone, roll a piece of the tape to form a point and stick it in the holes. Make sure the sticky side of the masking tape is on the outside.
