Help! I washed my remote!

I washed all my bedding and apparently ended up with the tv remote in there too. Is there anything I can do to save it?

  • odd as it sounds... take the batteries out right away before trying to use it and stick it in a bowl of dried rice rice absorbs water.. i had to do that for my blackberry once, leave it in there for at least 24 hrs then try it again

  • Take the batteries out and take it apart as much as you can (and still get it back together later) and place it in a bag of uncooked white rice (preferrably not instant) and the rice will pull the moisture out of it...Let it sit for at least 48 hours before you put it back together and see if it works...if it does not, you are out of luck...
