Way off wind today but what has a mobile phone got to do with
a bowl of rice. Got you on that one. Well I learnt something today that may well be of use. How many of you have dropped their mobile down the loo or in the bath. A neighbour and friend managed something less prosaic and, whilst fishing, she managed to drop her phone in the river! No don’t ask what she was doing answering the phone whilst fishing, but then “when I was a boy”! However we all know the old wives tales but this one is a new wives tale that actually worked. Drop you mobile in a bowl of rice and leave on the side. I am assuming here we are talking of uncooked rice. Probably an idea to take the battery and chip out but not essential. A day later and phone comes back to life. The rice has acted like a sponge for the moisture and all it has cost is a handful of rice, which I suppose may still be usable! Well perhaps better not if you dropped your phone down the loo.
