Water-Logged Phone? Safe Method Dries it Out Quickly

There are countless DIY solutions out there on the interwebs for unfortunate folks who have dropped their expensive smart phones in water. The suggestions for drying a wet phone (and saving yourself from having to buy a new one) range from submerging it in a bowl of uncooked rice to taking it apart and leaving it in the sun for a few days. If you are afraid of using a DIY method for drying out your wet cell phone, though, the Dry-All might be able to rescue your investment.

The Dry-All appears to be nothing more than a bag lined with drying beads. When you lock your wet phone inside for a couple of days, the beads soak up all of the excess moisture and produce a dry, working cell phone. The commercial above shows how easy it is to use, but be aware that it is easily the most annoying commercial ever made. You can buy one to have on hand for the next time your iPhone takes an unscheduled trip into the toilet: prices range from $29.99 for a cell phone bag to $59.99 for a smart phone bag.
