Phone Went For a Swim... in the Toilet

Day 13

I dropped my phone in the toilet this morning.  It decided to jump out of my back pocket and submerged itself. Right. In. The. Toilet.

I wanted to cry.

Now it's got... bathroom germs on it.  For a germaphobe, this is bad.

I pulled it out.  Took the case off and washed it.  I rinsed the phone (I'll sanitize it if it survives) and put it in a baggie with a bunch of those little dry packs you get in shoe boxes (I've dropped my phone in water before so I was prepared... never in the toilet though.).  I'll leave it in the baggie for 24 hours.

I hope it lives.

It's time for Spring break!  4:00 can't come fast enough today!


  1. Ugh, that can be the worst. I hope it survives!

  2. So sad! I would never have thought of using those dry pack things. I'll have to remember that.

  3. Sorry to hear it. I've heard putting them in rice helps dehydrate electronics. Worth a try?

  4. Ugh! I feel your pain! You want the phone to work and yet you don't. By the time you read my comment - you should be on spring break! Yes!! Happy break!!
