DETROIT (WWJ) – If you have a plan to do any St. Paddy’s Day drinking with your cell phone around – you may want to keep a bag of rice handy.

Best Buy Geek Squad Agent Robert Walker says your electronics are at risk when the booze is flowing, and rice can help get moisture out of a spilled-on phone

“You want to get your sealed container, and fill it with rice. Place your phone in there and then wait about 24-48 hours,” said Walker.

But before you reach for the rice — Walker recommends blotting excess liquid from the phone and taking out the battery — because water and electricity don’t mix.
