What's to love: It's better than a bag of rice for drying out a wet phone. Keep this pouch handy for when you get a cellphone wet.

What does it do: The pouch is made with a moisture wicking nylon which is filled with a water absorbing material. To use, turn off the phone and wipe off moisture. Remove the battery, if possible, and place in pouch and seal. Leave the phone in the pouch for 6 to 24 hours while moisture is absorbed from the phone. Recovery of all devices is not guaranteed, says the company, but this patented product has worked "time and time again." The Absorbits come in a variety of colors and sell for $12.99 each.
