GOT RICE?



.... so this past week I've dropped my IPOD into water twice ( yeah I know its only tuesday Surprised ) and it shut down on me. Thinking it was a total lose my wife tells me to fill a container with dry rice and submerge the device in the rice, cover and let it sit for 24hrs. I did so and sure enough the IPOD came back to life without any water damage to the screen and kept all my music & videos . Ive done this twice so far and it has work both times. Told a friend and she told me how she saved her blackberry the same way.

Not sure if yall heard this before, but it is so worth the time to try and save your water logged device and $$$$ instead of spending more money and getting a bigger headache.

I have heard this before, but always considered it a wife's tale since I never knew anyone who could actually tell me that they had done it and it worked.

Great to hear. My shit gets dropped, mopped, and submerged all the time

Thats a homemade desiccant. You know....those little packages that come in shoes & electronics.

Because rice craves moisture (thats why it weighs more after being boiled), it absorbs very well.

WIKI: A desiccant is a hygroscopic substance that induces or sustains a state of dryness (desiccation) in its local vicinity in a moderately well-sealed container.

Commonly encountered pre-packaged desiccants are solids, and work through absorption or adsorption of water, or a combination of the two.

Yup. Dass why you put a couple grains of rice in a salt shaker, to keep the moisture out of the salt so it don't stick together... Wink

Cool that it works on e-lec-tronics, too. Smile

Just don't use brown rice. It's absorbent properties are a bit different. White rice works better. Saved a laptop like that once. Took a 25lb bag of rice, but it was worth it Laughing
