what is the next step that you would take if your expensive mobile phone or iPod gets wet in the rain or you drop it in a wash basin?

such accidents are not very uncommon.Adam Curry once dropped his iPhone in the toilet.

since the warranty for most sophisticated electronics does not cover water damage,what can you do to revive that wet gadget? the answer is in your kitchen.

power off the device(if it’s not off already) and try to completely cover the iPod or iPhone in a bowl of rice.

why?believe it or not, rice being a natural desiccant will help absorb the excess moisture.let it try for at least 24 hours and DO NOT try to charge the device.

if your gadget has a removable battery, dry it separately to speed up the whole drying process. this home-remedy is economical and worth giving a try before you dash to the Apple store for a replacement.

Ernesto London0 successfully managed to fix his wet Blackberry phone after he left the device soaked overnight in a bowl of uncooked rice.

so give it a try!
