Anyone ever put their cellphone or other electronic device in the washing machine? Cause I accomplished that today. *facepalm* I put it in a bowl of rice in an attempt to save it, but I don't think it's likely. Especially since it was on when it went in the wash. hah. Oh wells.

I had one of those

I had one of those poke-walker things that came with Pokemon SoulSilver. Haha. It went through the wash twice, it miraculously survived the first time but not the second.

I'm a lot more prone to accidentally leaving pieces of paper with important information in my pockets and then washing them though. Haha. Oh well.

I always check my pockets

I always check my pockets before handing my clothes to my mom to wash them (yes, she still washes my clothes. What? She needs more to fill up the washing machine anyways xD) but I was in a hurry to have a shower yesterday, so I just threw everything that needed to be washed onto the bed and my pants with my cell were under them...then when I came out of the shower I got distracted by the internet and forgot to go through them.

How my mom didn't catch it though, I'll never know. But she's washed my dad's bus passes and money multiple times each, so.

A bowl of rice? Why rice?

A bowl of rice? Why rice? Just take a blowdryer to it. That'll fix it! ;D

Yep, like Kamkam said,

It absorbs the water. Apparently hairdryers are a bad idea, though. The heat is too much for cellphones. I went a searchin' for ways to save my phone and that's what I read, anyways.

Today my phone will turn on but the display is noticeably darker and it can't find service. Dx Maybe it will work itself out with more time? Though I'm not betting on it. Unfortunately my phone was on when it went into the washing machine, so that only made things worse. I think it's gone for good. Oh well, I didn't really want the thing anymore anyways.
