Does Drying Your Wet Phone in Rice Work?

Ever dropped your phone in water and someone proceeded to shout out, “Just put it in a bag of rice!’

We all wonder whether this is true or not but yet use it… just to make sure.

A study has shown that uncooked rice is in fact… not that great. It was found to be the least absorbent behind household materials such as instant rice, cat litter, silica gel and oatmeal.

The trick may be false but it makes sense in a way… Your phone is wet. Rice absorbs waters and so isn’t getting the water out from the phone to the rice the key?

Well, not according to science.
