What to do if your electric get wet.
I have had a lot of people ask me this recently soooo- If you have dropped your phone in liquid (toilet, wine, bath) or spilt liquid on your laptop, remote control etc then...
SWITCH OFF! UNPLUG! BLOT LIQUID! ACT QUICKLY!
1) DO NOT SWITCH IT ON!! The liquid conducts electricity (remember thunderstorms and why you shouldn't us a hairdryer in the bath?!). If a moisture droplet falls over two connections inside the gadget then it will create a short circuit. It wont work, or worse, will break it forever.
2)UNPLUG THE GADGET FROM THE MAINS SOCKET!! TAKE OUT THE BATTERY!! (See above! It might trip your house electrics if left plugged in, EVEN if it is switched off! (Remember those exploding GHDs? All switched off, but plugged into the wall? The transformers in the plug will still cycle if the plug is in the wall- so ALWAYS unplug things when out of use!!)
3) DISMANTLE as much as possible.
4)PLACE in a tub of dry rice, or if you have bags of silica gel (those packs that come in new bags or shoes) then use those. They are supposed to suck up moisture droplets from the air.
5) PLACE in the airing cupboard or, failing that, on/near a radiator. LEAVE ALONE for three days. Cross fingers and see what happens.
Hopefully this help you. I have known this method work on phones and laptops. Sea water (super conductive due to salt), wine, water and juice! Most people will go out and buy a new phone etc straight away, but have patience and hopefully this will save your pocket and data.
If the gadget still has problems then seek further help from a phone or laptop company. It is likely that the circuits have been corrupted permanently and that, even though the liquid is gone, something has shorted and blown up internally.
If you have any tricks then let me know!
