Many of you know that I love my dehydrator. Our family loves snacking on healthy fruit chips, fruit leathers, and yogurt drops. I also love dehydrating meals to go back pack camping. But those recipes are for another day.
Today I am loving my dehydrator for a non food reason. I dropped my cell phone in water. BOO! Unfortunately this is not the first time that it has happened in our house, so I feel like I am becoming an expert on reviving wet phones. Our dehydrator has brought phones back from a night in a puddle, a swim in a front loading washing machine (which I watched swirling around and there was nothing I could do but watch till the cycle ended) and a dip in the toilet.
Here is what has worked for us. Remove the battery out as quickly as possible and towel dry. Quickly place all the parts in the dehydrator on low over night. Simple, but it seems to do the trick. It has worked with all the phones we tried it on, but I make no promises. I have also heard that submerging the wet phone in a tub of dry rice works as well. I would love to hear if you have any tips as well. Happy Dehydrating!
