Let's say your device fell into the water. You luckily battery pulled or whatever and it hasn't died yet. So what now? Some people say put it in a bag of rice, but to me water has already seeped in. I understand rice absorbs a lot of water but how does it deal with water in cracks or underneath say a phone screen or somewhere where the rice isn't in contact? I've washed a camera before and my strategy was to remove everything and let it sit in front of a fan for a whole day. My reasoning is that *some* air will at least flow into the cracks and allow the device to dry out. Over an extended period of time like a day or two, it's pretty much dry. While I do understand the rice argument I see using moving air as more useful. Discuss. Edit: I suppose we can treat the rice like a desiccant, but desiccants are used to prevent moisture from building up rather than used to dry stuff. I'd like to know what's more effective.
