It’s a problem that many of us have faced over the course of our lifetimes – what do you do when you drop your phone in water?

Usually it’s the toilet or the bath or maybe the pool, but the result is always the same – your phone is completely fucked and your only hope is to get it into a bowl of rice ASAP. It’ll take a couple of days but if you’re quick enough then your phone should usually be saved.
For a long time that was the only way you even had a chance of salvaging your phone, but it turns out that there’s actually a method that may be even better than the trusty rice in a bowl. And the answer is using a cat litter.
Apparently if you shake all the excess water off your phone and then air dry it and place it in a zip lock bag of cat litter for a couple of days then it should come back as good as new. Not sure how you decide which is better out of rice or cat litter, but I suppose it’s good to know that if you can’t get one then you’ve always got the option of the other as well.
Although cat litter is probably more difficult to buy than rice, so not really sure how useful that is to be honest. At least we know now though.
I wonder if the world’s most expensive mobile phone is waterproof?
