    Dropped my earbuds in Chocolate
    Went to iHop, got some amazing chocolate chip pancakes, took them home to watch TV, dropped one ear bud in the melted chocolate. I've tried to clean out the interior of the bud with compressed air, but that isn't working. Is there any other means to clean out the interior of the earpiece, or a way to take it apart?

    Thanks,

    Try putting the ear buds in the freezer for awhile. The remaining chocolate will harden and be easier to remove. However, if any got inside the ear bud itself, removing it by taking the ear bud apart will probably destroy the bud.

    Yeah the outside is clear, whatever is left is inside the earbud.

    My wife suggested using 100% alcohol tp dissolve the remaining chocolate. At this point there's not much left to loose.
