How do I restore LCD damaged by liquid, specifically milk?

My 4 year old daughter spilled her milk on my Galaxy S3 purposely. I think the milk entered the Home button and eventually to the circuitboard and the LCD screen.

Before I discovered this, the phone was fully charged, then it just suddenly died, so I just left it on the wireless charger the whole afternoon. In the evening, I tried to switch it back on but it wouldn't switch. I then felt liquid coming out of the case so i immediately removed the case and back cover. To my surprize, it was soaked in milk.

I disassembled everything and dried everything then put everyting back together. the phone worked for a day then suddenly the screen went blank. No matter what I do to dry it, use my wife's hair dryer, put in a zip lock with dessicant for 2 days, it didn't come back to life.

I am sure that it is not the motherboard/circuitboard because I have tried it on my other S3, so I am sure it is the LCD screen.

The menu keys still light up, but the lcd is blank whenever I switch the phone on.

Any ideas?

Did you wash phone out with ISO alcohol or just hair dry it?

So you removed the motherboard and put in another phone and it worked?

One good tactic is to soak the LCD in distilled and water and dry it. When it is completely dry soak it again in ethanol and leave it to dry either in a bag of rice or cotton towel.

This will clear most residue and unwanted elements.

But I have a feeling you would have to change the LCD.

Good luck
