As soon as any liquid spills on your phone dry as much as you can off of the phone and then take it all the way apart. You'll want to make sure the battery sim card SD card and anything else in or on your phone is completely off.

Step 2: Get Out Your Vacuum With the Smallest Nozzle

After you take your phone completely apart proceed to vacuum your phone with the nozzle cupping your hand to create suction going over every single section for 3 minutes. You have to feel the suction, the phone should stay on the vacuum on its own if you are doing it properly. Be sure to turn the phone on each side, front , and back slowly sliding the vacuum and then cupping the nozzle. If you phone isn't working after the first time you may have to repeat this process a few times.

This isn't something i will try experimentally, the stakes are too high!!


This is a useful technique to keep in mind when an emergency strikes.

The other consideration is that it can be important to eliminate contaminants in the intruding liquid i.e acids from soft drinks, salts from soup.

Does this actually work? I feel like this would work in some cases but not all and you'd have to do it right away, not be out somewhere and do it when you get home.

It worked for me. I was sitting down eating a bowl of soup and the entire bowl spilled on my phone and the yellow damage indicator came on!!! I tried all sorts of things that didn't work and then tried the vacuum. I had to do it about 3 times but my phone did come back on. Not sure the time frame of how long your phone can be wet, but I would imagine the same principle would apply if a few hours passed until you got home
