Does putting your phone in rice really work?
Yes it does, especially if you put the phone and the rice into a sealed plastic bag. But while the rice will draw out the moisture, that doesn’t necessarily mean your phone will work properly afterwards. Also, rice may get stuck in the headphone socket. Soaking the phone in pure alcohol may be a better bet.
How do you dry a phone out with Rice?
The most convenient choice is uncooked rice.
Just leave the phone (and its disconnected battery) submerged in a bowl of grains overnight. If you’re worried about rice dust getting inside your phone, you can instead use the packets of silica gel that often come stuffed in the pockets of new clothes.
Should you turn your phone off if it gets wet?
If you got your cell phone wet, the first thing you should do is turn it off, even if it seems to be working, so it doesn’t short circuit. Once you’re done, leave your phone and battery in a bowl of uncooked instant rice or silica gel packets for 48-72 hours to absorb any leftover moisture.
