Yes, that is my cell phone (an iPhone 6s I've had since it was released last fall), in a plastic bag of rice in a larger bag of a heavy duty dessicant.
A dessicant is something that takes water out of the air or stuff it's close to. You see, my cell phone took a trip through the washing machine on Saturday morning. I spilled something really messy, and stinky on my bathrobe and in my eagerness NOT to make a mess on the floor, I ripped of the bathrobe and threw it in the washing machine. It was only later when I went looking for my cell phone and couldn't find it that I thought to look in the washing machine. There it was, under two feet of water. It had been there at least ten minutes.
It's probably the wet version of "toast", but I dried it out as best I could, sucked the water out of it with a vacuum and did a lot of things various websites and YouTube videos suggested.
I had sync'd it with iTunes on Wednesday, so I won't lose any DATA, but frankly, the data doesn't really concern me. All my photos sync to my iPad, and everything is backed up to my computer and to iCloud. What I really want is the device to work. Now sure, I have my old iPhone 5 to go back to if worse comes to worst, but hell, I really loved my iPhone 6s. I can't remember if I ordered the replacement insurance when I ordered it. It's a work phone, and that information is safely tucked away in my desk at work. I'll know on Monday.
In the meantime the phone is in the bag with the dessicant and if I am extremely lucky, I'll know in about 48 hours if I can rescue this one.
update Monday morning - it's still dead. Not looking good.
