This Week's Tip: Saving Electronics From Water Damage

The Mom Squad shares some tips and tricks to make life easier

If you drop your phone or mp3 player in water, don't panic! Try this trick and you may be able to save it.

First of all, do not try to turn it on. Put it into a ziploc bag of dry rice, seal it up, and leave it for a day. (You can also use those silica packets that come in some packaging.) The rice (or silica packets) will absorb the moisture from your electronic device.

My poor hubby's iPod has been through our washing machine twice now, and both times I was able to save it doing this! :)

This is really good to know, especially if you have children that tend to spill everything when your electronic devices are nearby ;) As always, thanks for the helpful tips, MomSquad!
