Holi is just around the corner and everyone is getting excited this time around. When this festival of color comes closer, everyone gets anxious about roaming around with their smartphones. Its’ time when one drenches by water balloons and color powders. However, we remember to take care of our skin and hair but we forget that most of the mobiles are not waterproof.

The colors are easy to clean whereas, everyone gets scared of water damage in our phones. As we know, it is difficult to recover a phone from water damage during Holi. Moreover, the repairing costs can leave your pockets a lot emptier.

Fortunately, we bring you some simple and handy tips that can help your phone survive this Holi.

How to prevent water damage to your smartphone during Holi

The easiest preventative measure to protect your phone is to put it inside a ziplock bag or something similar. You can buy an inexpensive pouch from Amazon, which should do the trick. This prevents water damage to the phone and also lets you use the touch screen without any problems.

A second, even cheaper method is to use a transparent, good quality balloon and stretch and insert your phone into that. Since its Holi, you’ll have water balloons all around. Get your phone inside one of them and tie a knot below. You’ll be able to still use the phone, but there’s a risk of the balloon tearing.

Another thing you can do for added security is to tape all the open ends of the phone like sim tray, charging jack, headphone jack. This step is easy to do, just be careful to ensure that all holes in the phone are covered.

If your phone gets water damage during Holi this is what you can do to save it:

  1. First and foremost, one should NOT use a hairdryer at all to dry their smartphones. If you use one, you will likely burn out the phone’s components in the process. So do not use it.
  2. Rice Box Method: In case your phone gets wet, don’t panic. Take your mobile and put it in a ziplock or plastic container filled with dry uncooked rice to absorb all the liquid inside your phone overnight. It’s better to change the phone’s position at intervals until you go to sleep. This will help any water left inside your phone to run down.
  3. On the other hand, silica bags can also be used instead of rice because they are also a good absorber.
