"Hi! This is Anthony for Gazelle.com. Today I'm going to show you how to clean out your headphone jack or your headset jack on your iPhone.
So a lot of people report problems that their head phones don't work anymore and most likely it's because of the debris right inside at the top of that headphone jack ...can see right there.
So here are your headphones.. in and out.. sometimes people get some lint in there ..dirt and other stuff so i'm going to
show you how to get that out right now.
So first thing you want to do - is take a good normal air can - and you want to spray that out...three or four sprays should do.
Next thing I like to do is a q-tip. So put that q-tip in there gently. You'll see it's all fit in there and gently take that out. This one's pretty clean already but sometimes if still that doesn't work there's one more trick you can do. Try one of these - take a normal paper clip ..and..a tiny piece of tape. This one's a little more advanced.. you gotta be really careful with this one.. and you'll take a little strip of tape like I have here and put it on there backwards - sticky side up - so it almost becomes like a little lint roller. So this is pretty much is going to become like a lint roller.. Let me make sure it's secure.. and you want to go in there with that. Pretty much be very gentle and you don't want to poke the thing poke the headphone port in there ..and you should pull out whatever is remaining on there. It's pretty much like a homemade lint roller brush. So that's how you clean your headphone jack. Hope this helps! Thanks."
