After dipping, the excess alcohol must be shaken off such that the Q-tip is full saturation and not dripping wet. Use the Q-tip to clean the sides of the power button. Go down the cracks as far as possible. But make sure you hold your smartphone upside down so that alcohol does not seep into your smartphone as gravity will prevent it.
