    A couple of days ago I dropped my phone in water for a second before I pulled it out and dried it off. I put the phone in rice and some Damp Rid. The Damp Rid completely dried it out and the phone was working perfectly fine until it died. I tried to plug in the charger and it wouldn't fit. I'm broke, so I just did some online research and tried submerging it in alcohol, as suggest on many forums, and my phone is working, but its blueish and the touch screen isn't working well. Please help! I have a IPhone SE and its getting notifications and everything's perfect, but there is just something weird happening with the screen. I can't move it, its blueish and there seems to be a faded picture of a blueprint.

    The immediate danger of most liquids on electronics is its ability to conduct electricity. It can instantly create a short circuit allowing an electrical current to travel along an unintended path between the tightly packed traces and circuitry seen in modern electronic devices. This has the potential to immediately destroy electrical components.

    I figured. However, since Damp Rid has been such a miracle for me in situations like this I went back to using that and its been only a couple of hours ,but the touch screen is working again. However,there is still the discoloration of the screen and the blurriness of my camera so i'm going to allow it to sit for the recommended 24 hours. I'm just happy to be making progress since I also thought my phone was going to need to be replaced.

    I hope you had your pictures and other important things backed up. I think that phone is already destroyed and may need professional repair.
