Some of you may know this trick but if you don't I may be able to save you some money, trouble, tears and lost data (no promises just maybes here people). My iPhone decided to take a swim this weekend in a bucket I was using to mop the floors with- awesome. The first thing I did was snatch that puppy up so fast and start drying it off. I dried my phone with a towel and blew in the charger outlet to make sure all the water was out of that area. After this I turned off my phone and placed my phone in a bowl of rice.
I made sure my phone was covered in the rice and let sit for a few hours. The rice draws out the moisture from your phone and helps to dry out your phone. After I had let my phone sit I pulled it out re-turned it on and checked to make sure it was able to charge and I was good to go! Thank goodness! Disaster avoided, this time.
