Does putting MacBook in rice work?
In short, don’t do it!
Now let’s discuss this in more detail. So, there is an opinion that if you put a gadget with water damage in rice, it will save the situation, since the rice will absorb moisture.
Without a doubt, rice can absorb a large amount of liquid. But try to imagine the whole process. Let’s say you put a damaged laptop in fig. If even a little moisture gets on the grains, they will begin to swell and become sticky. They can get into the USB port and charging port and get stuck there. Or they can stick to the keys. What if the soft grain breaks and the particles get inside the case? None of these options sounds good.
Plus, while you’re hoping rice will save your laptop, the moisture inside the case continues to be destructive. Delays and waiting are very dangerous here.
Therefore, do not rely on the magical effect of rice, but immediately contact the service center for help.
