It’s a common myth circulating on the internet: If your cell phone gets wet, for example, because you accidentally spill a drink or drop it in the bathtub, just put it in a bowl of rice. This sounds like a quick and easy solution, as almost everyone has this staple food in their pantry.

Supposedly, rice can draw the liquid out of the appliance due to its texture. However, this is not true, as rice is not very absorbent, so if it is possible to remove liquid from a cell phone by soaking it in rice, it has more to do with the time the cell phone spends there than with the grains.

Apple: Neither rice nor hairdryer
An official statement from Apple has now emerged, stating that it is better not to put iPhones in rice if the device warns of liquid ingress. “Do not put your iPhone in a bag of rice. This could cause small particles of rice to damage your iPhone,” reads the official Apple documents discovered by Macworld. The statement also says that no other external heat sources, such as hair dryers or compressed air cleaners, should be used for drying. Cotton buds or paper towels should also not be inserted into the charging port.

Instead, according to Apple, you should tap the phone with your own hand while holding it with the charging port facing downward, just as you would remove liquid from your ear after swimming. The iPhone should then be left in a place with good air circulation. The phone can be used again when the warning no longer appears on the display. This can take up to 24 hours.
