If you ever have the misfortune of dropping your cell phone accidentally in water immediately take it apart. Pat gently with paper towels to get the excess water off. Put enough rice in a bowl to cover the cell phone pieces and place plastic wrap securely over the bowl. The rice will absorb the moisture overnight! It may save you having to replace the cell phone!

I also put a few grains of dry rice into my salt shakers to keep the moisture out and keep the salt flowing smoothly. Never thought of using it for other moisture problems. Thanks for sharing. (05/19/2009)
Yep, since most fully-loaded cell phones cost a minimum of $250 and even basic models usually cost around $100, this tip could really save someone a fortune! (05/20/2009)
My son put his cell phone in front of the fan of his playstation; it blows hot air. The moisture evaporated in no time. Phone works fine. (05/20/2009)
