iPhone speaker too low

Well, I got a simple accident - "Mozart Chocolate Liqueur" were split over my iPhone 3G. I quickly clean it out, but... Next day I noticed that my iPhone speaker was too low. I was not able to hear it ringing. After looking around for solution I found a post telling that this can be caused by dust. Seems that this is my case (ok, not dust, but a creamy liqueur...). 

So, I put some music on my iPhone and start carefully cleaning the microphone hole with a needle. After just a few holes I made on the "dust" - I was able to hear that volume had increased. So I finished up cleaning by putting a needle just a little into every tiny hole of the speaker protection and everything worked like a charm. My speaker volume came back to the normal level (or even louder).

Just in case that you have a doubt on which one is speaker and which one is microphone on your iPhone - here is a picture:
