Is RICE The Best Way To Save A Wet Phone?

Get your first KiwiCo box for FREE:
Today we're taking an old myth, that putting your phone in rice will remove water, and comparing it to another water extraction process- a vacuum chamber. Is one better than the other, and does a vacuum chamber even work?

    It's not the rice, it's the anti-stick coating on the rice. Also, you needed a third phone as a control experiment.

    If you get your phone wet, absolutely do not start pressing buttons to see if it's okay. Take the battery out, clean off any excess water, and let it dry completely before checking it.

    So just a heads up, the first step after discovery of a phone or other electronic device falling in water or becoming heavily splashed etc, is to remove the battery!!! I cannot stress enough that power should be removed from the device ASAP. Then you can proceed with efforts to dry out the innards.

    I answer before I even watch the video and say that, No rice is not the best option but it is the fastest, always accessible and cheapest for anyone that doesn't have the tools and know how to save his phone. Thus it is the best first action!

    I’ve heard salt is also meant to help dry out a wet phone. Supposedly it’s based on the fact that salt attracts water and it has been used to dry meats and also used in ancient embalming practices.
