    You are probably stuck with it honestly. I don't see a way without ruining anything else to get rid of it. DId you drop your device in a puddle or something?

    Looks like isopropyl alcohol is your friend.

    How do I clean corrosion after water damage? - iPhone 4 - iFixit

    My guess, however, is that whatever corrosion is showing up in your charging port is merely the tip of the iceberg and there is more damage on the inside that you won't be able to fix without popping the thing open.

    A toothbrush and alcohol should do the trick.

    Iso alcohol and a cleaning pad will do the trick.

    Yes, but Action Corrosion are only in Australia. I see no option to order from them directly.
