Mobile phones can be repaired at home also. Here are some of the ways.

*Dismantle it: After taking it out of the liquid, immediately dismantle all the parts. Do not turn the phone on.
*Dry in rice: A quick way to dry the phone up is to put it in a bowl of dry, raw rice. The rice will soak up the water from all the parts.
*Ditch the hair dryer: Do not try to dry it with a hair dryer. The heat from it will just damage the phone’s body and can also cause serious defects in the internal circuits.
*Keep the sugar away: Incase you have dropped the phone in a solution containing sugar, say in a cup of tea, you should get your self a bottle of distilled water (used in inverter batteries). Dip the phone parts in the water, and the sugar sediments will dissolve in the distilled water and drip out.
*Vaccum it up: If moisture still remains, draw it this residual moisture with the help of a vaccum cleaner. Just hold the nozzle over the affected areas for up to 20 minutes, in each accessible area (take it in turns with a friend). This is the fastest method and can completely dry your phone, and get it working in thirty minutes.
