    I dropped my phone in a bugit of cleaner for 2 seconds. I turned the phone off. And put it in a bag of rice. All night it had a red light on the battery indicator. It wouldn't say charging. It's only slowly changing. Well it take some time to act right. It's charging at the moment only 16%

    Unfortunately if it had a light on, the phone wasn't turned off entirely and that already posed a risk to further damaging any internals due to the liquid immersion. Have you made sure there is no leftover liquid in the port (dry blow clean, soft brush)? If the phone is getting warm while charging, stop charging and take it to a repair shop.

    And please read Oh, no! My Phone got Wet! If none of the cleaner got inside the phone, alcohol may fix it. (Unfortunately, if cleaning solution, which can be very high or very low, in pH, got inside the phone, the phone is probably gone by now.

    You shouldn't plug it in until you know it's totally dry.

    Who knows what was in that cleaner. Even if it starts working right again, that may not last. If those chemicals are corrosive it could easily lead to more damage down the road. Even water resistant phones are only designed to pass specific lab tests with pure water.
