What should you do if your phone gets wet?

5. Put it in a vacuum bag

This way you can extract any water stuck in the slots and the areas difficult to reach. Put the phone in a plastic bag and suck out the air, creating a vacuum effect. It will suck the liquid out of the inner parts of the phone.

6. Put it in a bowl of rice or other absorbent

No, it’s not a myth. Drying the phone with a handkerchief does not allow you to reach inside the phone, and you’re going to need something to absorb the moisture…like uncooked rice. Put the phone and all its parts in a bowl of rice and leave it there for about two days. You can use other alternative materials that absorb water such as cat litter or silica gel sachets (usually found in dry foods, vitamins or new shoe boxes).

7. Turn it on…and keep your fingers crossed

It’s very important to give your phone at least two days to dry and resist the urge to turn it on, because if a tiny water particle remains inside, all your efforts will be useless. Good luck!
