70% Rubbing Alcohol used to help clean out the contact in the home button. Would be better to use maybe 90%+, but 70% is ok.

Make sure you DO NOT USE POLISH REMOVER, acetone will wreak havoc on elelctronics and probably your screen. Also just use the clear rubbing alcohol without any other compounds in there (should be 70% isopropy alcohol and 30% water, none of that mintgreen stuff)

1. Dip Finger in rubbing alcohol, so there is a droplet on tip
2. Rub in circular motion around button for 10 seconds
3. Press each side of of button rapidly for 20 seconds
4. Rub in circular motion again for 10 seconds
5. Flip phone on screen, and tap buttom of phone against table a couple of times. All done in a minute so the alcohol evaporates.
6. Start phone up again and enjoy a fresh button!

THIS IS A DIY FIX, I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF SOMETHING WHERE TO GO WRONG HERE. But seems to have fixed the issue for me with no problems. Do at your own risk.
