Rice - the savior of water-damaged gadgets

Posted on Monday, June 25 2007 @ 07:30:05 CEST by

Earlier this week I spotted a nice tip on Engadget regarding what you need to do with water-damaged electronics:
Sure, you could meticulously disassemble and clean your water-logged gear, but why go to all the trouble when the help you're looking for is right in your kitchen? Rice -- not only is it nutritious and delicious, its absorbent nature can be harnessed to dry out your toilet-soaked gear, as one (un)lucky BlackBerry-wielding Washington Post blogger discovered recently when he dropped his phone in the worst-possible place. But half an hour with a blow dryer and a night submerged in a bowl of uncooked rice managed to get his handheld back up and running -- unfortunately, we suspect no amount of rice will absorb the lingering thought of toilet water in your ear whenever you're on a call.
