It isn't too difficult to accidentally drop a small piece of electronics in the drink. This could of course be a cellphone, but there are plenty of other small devices that could find themselves flooded as well. Here's a suggestion about how to handle this little emergency. 1. Take the battery out. 2. If there is a SIM card, take that out as well. 3. Wipe all the moisture off of the outside of the device. 4. Place the device (and battery) in a small container of uncooked rice. Snap on the lid. 5. Take the device out the following day and try it out. Good luck and try not to do that again.
