Default Earpiece Volume Went Abysmal

Hi guys,

My screen got a bit dirty today so I decided to get wet a piece of cloth and wipe down my screen. However it seems that now my call quality is god awful and I can barely hear out of the earpiece. Has this happened to anyone else? I've wiped down my iPhone 4 multitudes of times in the same manner and have never encountered anything like this.
I actually thought the sound quality was excellent before and to have to fall like this is horrifying.

Can anyone suggest a solution? I have a big phone interview this week and I need to be able to hear clearly

Did water get into the internals? Turn off your phone and place in into rice.

Unless it entered through the earpiece, I don't think it did. I really have no idea about how the earpiece is built or if the water would be able to reach the internals via the headphones. Definitely nothing went inside any other opening though....

Wait for the earpiece to dry, its quite exposed up there. Personally I use dry cloth only but if its really bad a touch of water on the cloth can help but not so much as to create any puddles.
