I always recommend using rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol to apply it instead of using soapy water because it dries faster.
Several months ago, I got another Blackberry 8100 Pearl White and I decided to give it a try to see if all this time of recommending using rubbing alcohol or denatured alcohol is a good thing to do or not.
I even made a topic about my experiment but did not get too many replies and views for some odd reason.
Turns out that I was right and it is a great alternative to do that instead of using soapy water.
The problem of using soapy water is if you get some inside the phone, you have to wait for the entire day for it to dry out before you put the battery back in the phone. (Keep in mind you have to take the battery out when you apply it.)
What if you don't know you got some in the phone? That can be a big problem.
With rubbing alcohol and denatured alcohol, it dries out fast.
You can mix it with 1/3 water to it if you want. If you decided to not mix any water too it, you may get air bubbles BUT it will be gone after a day.
I also recommend splash some on the table. That way, you know when it is completely dry to put the battery back in the phone.
