Tip of the day: Dry out your soaked gadgets in rice

Ever fell victim to being thrown into a pool while your phones or whatever gadgets are still on hand or just simply getting them wet? Well here is a technique that could help save your gadgets.

Dry out your soaked gadgets in rice. There's a grain of truth to this in that rice quickly sucks up the surrounding moisture. Make sure the environment is free from excess humidity, drop the wet device in a container of rice and let it sit. For a better desiccant, it'd be a good idea to store all those little silica gel packets that come in anything from shoe boxes to moisture-sensitive gadgets.

*Note: Personally have not tried this and I don't recommend you to do this in the name of science so I don't claim any responsibility if you do try this out.
