Today we're taking an old myth, that putting your phone in rice will remove water, and comparing it to another water extraction process- a vacuum chamber. Is one better than the other, and does a vacuum chamber even work?

  • Soak a shirt in a bucket of water for 5 to 10 minutes.... When it's dripping wet..... Toss it into the freeze dryer..... Maybe it becomes crisp?????

  • If your phone goes in the washing machine, just put it in the tumble dryer as well. Actually works

  • I think rice would be better if you did it over night my phone got wet i put it in rice over night it worked plus not everyone has a vac chamber

  • you should have done a control test too, another wet phone just air dry.

  • can you try boiling water in the vacuum chamber then take it out and try to boil an egg

  • 9:30 she eats raw rice

  • It helps if you take the battery out guys. I also put it in the rice and I put it on the dash of my car. The sun will heat up my car and that seems to help take the moisture out. I've saved 3 phones like this. Admittedly none of them were this walmart super phone, but they were saved.

  • If u drop your phone in water turn the oven on at 200 wrap your phone in a towel or shirt and put it on top of the stove for about 20 minutes with the battery out and it will work 100%i have done it before

  • This might be more inefficient than heat...

  • Thats the phone i watched this on

  • They should investigate why warm air drys faster than cold

  • the phone is waterproof?! 😂😂 lmao

  • Super

  • Best way I’ve thought to save a wet phone is, silica packets. Those little “do not eat” packets that come with shoes and such, collect them in a zip-lock bag. Seems to work the best, without any residue that rice may leave. I’m sure you can also order the packets if you don’t wanna wait to collect several.

  • Broken things GET A Hammer

  • Can you drink the water after you use it in a vacuum

  • i got both of those kits

  • My phone is more awesome than I knew...

  • i have both the spin art thing and the claw hand from kiwi

  • I'd like to see this again, but put drying salts in the bottom.

  • Could you cook food in a vacuum chamber.

  • It's not the rice, it's the anti-stick coating on the rice. Also, you needed a third phone as a control experiment.

  • Can you boil ramen noodles with a vacuum

  • 3:55 check the backround 😢😭😢😭😢😭😢😭😢

  • Why eat rice?


  • Was that Phil Swift on the fridge?😂😂😂

  • If you get your phone wet, absolutely do not start pressing buttons to see if it's okay. Take the battery out, clean off any excess water, and let it dry completely before checking it.

  • You guys should try making Mac and cheese in the vacuum chamber.

  • can vacuum chamber make popcorn? and what will happend if you put meat in vacuum chamber??

  • Why not just put a wet phone in front of a dehumidifier

  • lol i have tcl phone

  • For some reason I’m loving their intro diversity. Anyone else notice their intros aren’t always the same or am I not watching them in order? 😂

  • What I learned from this video: Walmart phones arnt that bad in quality

  • You have to fully submerge your phone in the rice in order for your phone to functionally work properly
