Moisture + Cell Phones


These two substances really don’t mix without disappointing results. How do you fix this on a dime and in a second? Ziplocs.

No, seriously, I mean it. They may not be fail-proof, but I’ve been “wading” down our very flooded roads (I’m talking several feet of water in places) for the better part of two days. My trusty old flip phone stashed safely away in a Ziploc has survived all the excitement with no difficulty whatsoever.

Here are some times when you might want to consider packing some extra sandwich baggies:

  • Going to the beach
  • Theme/Water Parks
  • Thunderstorms (It’s amazing how quickly your pockets can get soaked through.)
  • Flooded areas
  • Canoeing
  • Hiking (No joke: even a good bit of sweating can cause issues at least with cheap-o phones. 🙂 )
  • etc.

    Great idea. If you do get moisture in your cell phone, just add some rice to that bag and leave overnight. The rice will absorb the moisture and the phone should be working well again.
