    Unhappy My daughter spilt milk on my Storm

    On Christmas Eve, my daughter kicked over her glass of milk while she was sleeping and spilled it all over my Storm. I didn't know this happened until many hours later. The milk was dried up on the top of the screen. I didn't figure out she spilled milk on it until I went to call someone and my screen wouldn't click anymore. Then milk started dripping out on the back side when I took the battery cover off. I put my Storm in a bowl of rice for 12 hours or so.... then tried it. It worked. It works great. Who says the storm isn't durable. LOL

    Im sure the rice trick worked for now but there is probably a lot of the stickyness and will have the foul smell in a couple of weeks/months. It is good that it is working for you, but you might be repacing it with your insurance later down the road!

    um, glad it worked too, but maybe dumb question, why was your precious Storm so precariously close to sleeping daughter and glass of milk?

    could just as easily been Santa who knocked the glass over

    ... but then again, he would have gotten you a replacement. I'm sure he had some Storm's in his bag

    It helps to absorb the moisture in those hard to reach places.

    lol agreed. My buddy spilled milk in his car once and the stench stayed in there for WEEKS. He had to take his car to the cleaners and that only helped a bit.

    Maybe if the loaf of bread was shredded into a bunch of peices....then it "might" work. But the reason rice works so well, is because you submerge the phone into the rice, completely covering the phone. And the rice will draw out and absorb any moisture.

    Well, it's been a few days and no the phone doesn't smell. Thank goodness.
    For those of you who asked...
    my step-daughter fell asleep in our reclining chair on Christmas Eve. My Storm was on my coffee table beside the chair. She must of kicked it over in her sleep when she was tossing and turning waiting for Santa.

    It is when you spill something on your phone. You take a bag of rice and put it in a bowl or jar (jar is better because you can seal it off so no moisture from the air can get in). Stick your phone in it over night. The dry rice will adsorbs the moisture out of the phone. People put rice in salt shakers to keep it from clumping.
