Salvage A Soggy Phone

Salvage A Soggy Phone
If you drop your mobile phone into a puddle of wintry slush or even into your toilet, you’ll need to act quickly to remove all water from the device if you hope to salvage it. Remove the battery and power off your device; remove all visible water with a dry towel, and then look toward your pantry for rice. Dry rice is a desiccant, which means that it absorbs water from the air around it. When placed in a sealed container with your device for at least 48 hours, the rice will absorb water from the air, creating a state where the water in the phone evaporates quickly. This may not always work, but it’s worth a shot!
