First Aid for iPhones

So my flatmate ended up in a swimming pool with his iPhone. To my astonishment leaving the thing in a jar of rice – as advised by many online – actually did the trick. The rice absorbs the water, and this process can be further aided by the use of a warm airing cupboard, bagged silica gel and compressed air sprays of the like used to clean keyboards. Just take care not to charge the phone up or turn it on until you’re pretty sure it’s dried out.

    Does the rice taste ok afterwards?
