Repairing Your iPod from Water Damage

My daughter actually inspired this post.  She accidentally dropped the ipod in the tub one day.  Instead of telling us that she dropped it in the tub, she searched the internet for answers to solve her problem. (She thought she would be in serious trouble).  Love when the children use the internet for things beside watching videos.  She found this experiment online.  She put it in brown rice for three days. She covered the entire iPod. After three days, she put it in the refrigerator for one day.  Then, she took it out of the refrigerator and removed it from the rice.  Guess what? It actually turned on!

  1. Your daughter’s reaction is adorable as is the entire story. It’s surprising that brown rice and a refrigerator could so easily repair the iPod.

  2. Hello Sharon, nice article I’ve heard about using rice for devices that get wet but never try it, I’m glad to came across your post to confirm that it really works.

    Thanks so much for the great info. Have a wonderful day my friend.
