Re: Water damage
For the sake of accurate info, whoever wrote that article missed the point. Contact is not the mechanism for water removal in the rice technique, it's humidity. I am an electronics professional and the rice technique is certainly not a myth. With that said, it is not a very efficient method for moisture removal. Some time in the sun and open-air is the best, free technique. The most effective way to deal with it (and the one I use for multi-thousand dollar pieces of equipment) would be dessicants, which you can but from a craft or gun store. You can find them in new clothing and shoes as well but they need to be re-charged in an oven to be effective.
