    A week ago i dropped olive oil on the phone and it went inside the earpiece. I made some phone calls afterwards but the sound was a bit weird, i tried to suck out the oil and it finally worked and it's back to normal. Today i noticed something very weird, when i record a video or put a phone call on speaker, the mic doesn't work at all. After some internet searching i found out the mic for recording is inside the earpiece! HOW CAN I FIX IT It's DRIVING ME CRAZY.

    refer to qualified service personel... the part can be replaced... meanwhile, look into using an external mic for shooting video...

    No way to fix it at home using air dryers or anything similar?

    Nope. Damage is done. If you have AppleCare+ - make use of it... or find an Apple Authorized Service Center to fix it...

    You could try turning the phone off and using isopropyl alcohol. But it will eat away at any adhesive inside the device so it might break something.
