Dropped your phone in water? Put it in a bowl of rice!


Let’s say you drop your phone in the sink or pool for whatever reason. You are, in fact, S.O.L., but there’s a couple things you can do to minimize the damage. The first, obviously, is to remove the battery from the device… unless you have an iPhone, at which point you can thank Apple for choosing form over function.

Step two—and sit down for this because it’s a doozy—is to submerge your battery-less phone into a bowl of dry rice indicates that water was there, sorry!

Oh! And if you own an iPhone (or iPod Touch), you can slip it inside the Sanwa Waterproof Bag. That way, you can take awesome iPhone photos and video of your poolside shenanigans and zip ’em off to Facebook post-haste.
