The Teenagers Cell Phone.
His link to the outside world, or so he says.
Dropped it in a bath tub half full of water...ooops
(Getting ready to bathe the cats)
Hollers "I NEED RICE".
Did you know you could put your drowned cell phone in rice and it will suck the water out.
It is a desiccant meaning *a substance that promotes drying*
Did you know that?
Two days later.
Turns out you can put your phone, sim card and battery in a bowl of rice for 24 to 48 hours and the rice will draw out the water.
If phone was in water for more than a couple of minutes, it can take up to six days to draw out the water.
Um...Okay...I don't have six days to be with out phone, so I would get a replacement.
But two days...saving a couple hundred dollars...Uh, Heck to the Yes!
Another frugal tip from the always adventurous...
