Bheestie Bag will save your wet devices

Spilled your drink on your smartphone? Dropped your mp3 player in a puddle of water? There’s no need to worry, your device is safe as long as you have the Bheestie Bag.

The Bheestie Bag is a lightweight pouch that seeps moisture out of your device using tiny, liquid-absorbing beads. After you spill your morning coffee on your phone, the first (and the most important) thing you should do is to quickly take the battery out, shake dry your device and place it inside the bag and wait for 24 to 72 hours. The beads work like rice when used to dry out liquid from a source, as they are created to bond with moisture physically.

This is a safe way to dry your device as it just works by itself. Blow drying, a popular drying method, is not advisable because the heat coming from the dryer will further damage your device. Drying your wet phone under the heat of the sun is also not recommended for the same reason.

In case of emergency, rice is still the best solution, since rice is a natural soaking agent. Unlike the methods discussed above, this method works.

Despite having these solutions, using the Bheestie Bag is still the most consistent. The beads in the bag change color to indicate when it has to be replaced, but don’t worry, it is reusable up to one year, depending on how often you use it. We don’t suggest putting soaked devices here, though, as its absorbing powers won’t stand too much moisture.
