Is RICE The Best Way To Save A Wet Phone?
The King of Random
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.

    Could you cook food in a vacuum chamber.

  • Jonn

    It's not the rice, it's the anti-stick coating on the rice. Also, you needed a third phone as a control experiment.

    If you get your phone wet, absolutely do not start pressing buttons to see if it's okay. Take the battery out, clean off any excess water, and let it dry completely before checking it.

    You have to fully submerge your phone in the rice in order for your phone to functionally work properly



  • secretagb

    So just a heads up, the first step after discovery of a phone or other electronic device falling in water or becoming heavily splashed etc, is to remove the battery!!! I cannot stress enough that power should be removed from the device ASAP. Then you can proceed with efforts to dry out the innards.

    Can you make rice in a vacuum chamber?

  • STRS

    I answer before I even watch the video and say that, No rice is not the best option but it is the fastest, always accessible and cheapest for anyone that doesn't have the tools and know how to save his phone. Thus it is the best first action!
