Another good method worth trying if none of the above steps have worked is to use cotton wool buds. Any cotton wool buds will do the trick, once you’ve found a few pinch the ends to narrow the cotton wool end. This is done as it allows you to penetrate the charging port and the headphone jack. Next you want to throughly clean all ports on the iPhone, doing this cleaning process should eliminate any residual water, moisture or fizzy drink that had gotten into the iPhone.

Similar to steps 1 and 2 for eliminating the water from the iPhone using rice or a paper towel, another good alternative is to use silica packets. These are the things you get when you buy a new pair of shoes. If you can’t find any silica packs around, empty shoes boxes are a great place to look. Try and find as may as you can and repeat the same process from step 1 but instead of the rice use the silica packs.
