Re: Rice & Oven

I have dried two iPod touches that got wet using rice.  One was in a pocket when my son jumped off a boat (fresh water) and the other was a drop in a toilet (don't ask, lol)  both got submerged & full of water.    Both had as much water shaken out and put in a sealed bag of rice for 3 days before the power button was hit.     Both were dry and work fine.   You could even see some of the rice get moist the process...   Not sure where you get this is an old wives tale.

I do get that a DSLR would be a slightly different effort, you would need to make sure no rice got inside the lens mount, etc.   Is that what you meant by contaminants?

I would be way more worried about melting something in an oven, hope you were kidding.
