I have this old phone. How do i remove this "oil" under the screen protector without peeling the protector off? I dont know how it got there. It just accumulated overtime. Note that this phone is just in storage most of the time

Hey Lambsauce,

Looks like there's a bit of moisture stuck underneath your screen protector. Might not necessarily be oil, actually - the color may be coming from the layers in the screen protector.

Typically when moisture / air pockets are stuck inside an adhesive layer, you could use a squeegee (or any fine-edged plastic tool, like a card) to kind of push out the contaminant onto the edges. Maybe that'll work for this one? Just be careful not to apply too much pressure so as to not crack your screen.

However, if your screen protector is made from glass, I'm not entirely sure if that will work as the surface is much harder. The squeegee trick only rly works for plastic screen protectors (or vinyl stickers lol) 

Let me know if this helps!
