This week I have another “have to share” with you guys!
So a few weeks ago when I was super sick with strep throat I was watching TV just before bed. When I turned my TV off I, in my fever-stricken-state, thought I put the remote control on the night stand.
So what shock and horror when I woke the next morning to see my remote submerged in my glass of water!!!!!!!!!!
OH NO! I tried to turn it on, but of course… nothing, it was dead!
Then I had a light bulb moment. I remembered a few weeks back that I caught the tail-end of a news story about how you can possibly save a cell phone that has been dropped in the toilet. I thought this might work for my remote.
So… want to know how???
The reason for rice is that it will absorb the moisture.
So I took my remote and put it in a pie plate and poured rice on top till the remote was completely covered.
Then I just let it sit for 24 hours.
Now… I have to admit I was a bit skeptical that this easy fix would work… but it did!!!
I had to reprogram the remote… but it works!
So before you ditch that toilet soaked phone or water submerged remote… give rice a chance!
