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 helps if you take the battery out guys. I also put it in the rice and I put it on the dash of my car. The sun will heat up my car and that seems to help take the moisture out. I've saved 3 phones like this. Admittedly none of them were this walmart super phone, but they were saved.

  • If u drop your phone in water turn the oven on at 200 wrap your phone in a towel or shirt and put it on top of the stove for about 20 minutes with the battery out and it will work 100%i have done it before

  • Best way I’ve thought to save a wet phone is, silica packets. Those little “do not eat” packets that come with shoes and such, collect them in a zip-lock bag. Seems to work the best, without any residue that rice may leave. I’m sure you can also order the packets if you don’t wanna wait to collect several.
