Many times we have to switch on some services like Wi-Fi, GPS, Mobile Data and Bluetooth and we forget to disconnect or turn off these services after using them.If you kept on these services then it can hamper the Smartphone’s performance drastically and drain the battery rapidly.

There is no need of heave solvents, clean water should suffice. Besides, chemical and solvent might do more harm than benefit.
