Uncooked rice: The new hero of teens with ipods and cell phones.
Word is at the local high school that if your cell phone or ipod has gone through the wash you can save it by burying it in uncooked rice. My 15 year old son has told me numerous stories of rice to rescue--and since he's ended up with two phones and an MP3 player death by washing machine; I was interested. I guess it might make sense, maybe the rice absorbs the moisture? Anyone else heard this?
