    I recently got a 5S and am terribly OCD about keeping my stuff clean. What do people use for cleaning the speaker grills and the earpiece? It always seems like I'm getting stuff caked on there.

    Thanks!

    What about the earpiece and speaker grills? Speakers aren't so bad, but the earpiece always seems to have something on it/in it.

    I wipe the entire phone. There's nothing in the earpiece or speaker grills.

    Just a fiber cleaning cloth, like everyone else.

    Microfiber (or my jeans or shirt) for the screen and the back. I usually just blow in the earpiece grill.

    I use a microfiber cloth also. My earpiece & speakers rarely ever get dirty.

    My pant leg or other cotton item of clothing that I'm wearing! The best cloth to be though if I'm at home is one that came with an Otterbox I'd purchased some time ago!

    I've never had anything in my earpiece or speaker grill. I wipe my screen on any soft material.

    I use a microfiber cloth and a mild solution(dust repellent) which cleans it really well.

    The wipes from Well Kept. You can get them from the stay well kept website (google it) or jcrew. They're amazing. I used to love the Zagg ones but they 1) dried out in the pack like immediately, even in a Ziploc, and 2) left streaks. So even though I could readily buy more at Target and Best Buy, they weren't worth the $4-8 bucks depending on the size if I threw half out in a week or two. The Well Kept ones stay damp in the pack, even after being open for months, and dry super quickly without leaving streaks or spots. They don't affect the screen coatings at all, either. And in a pinch work great on glasses, jewelry and other stuff. You can also get at JCrew, often on sale too, if you are in a pinch and need a pack faster than shipping. They have good sales on their own site too, but the shipping isn't super fast all the time.
