So you decided to jump into the pool with your iPod on? Maybe your were listening to it while doing your business, then got up and it slid right into the toilet? Well, there is still hope for your iPod. Give your iPod the best chance with these tips:
Do not attempt to turn your iPod back on right away
It’s not so much the water that damages electronics, but the short that can happen if you power them on when they are still wet. Keep it off until you know it’s totally dry.
Remove all peripherals from the device
Take the case off, headphones and any other items that might be attached to your iPod.
Use a vacuum
Take then handheld part of a vacuum cleaner and run it around the device. Try to get as much of the water out of it as possible. DO NOT use an item like a blow dryer. That will only force air into other areas of your iPod and may cause more damage.
Leave the device in a well ventilated area
Place the device face up in an area where the water will evaporate out of it. What I like to do is put it in front of a low running fan. Leave it there for at least 3 days, longer if it’s really saturated.
