7 Steps for Removing Water from Your Phone SpeakerGetting water in your phone speaker is a very common issue. It can happen to anyone, and it’s not always easy to know how to remove the water from inside the phone. This blog post will teach you 7 steps that will help you get all of that pesky water out of your phone and back on track!

Step By Step Guide How to Remove Water from Phone Speaker

Step One:

Open your phone to dry it out. If water gets inside of the speaker, there are two things you can do–either place a paper towel over the area and turn on the fan or blow air from a vacuum cleaner onto that area for about thirty seconds. The purpose is to dry them as quickly as possible in order to avoid short circuiting your phone’s electrical components. Once these areas have been dried, make sure they remain untouched by any moisture!

Step Two:

Remove all visible signs of water with resealable plastic bags filled with uncooked rice before turning off and storing your device away. This will help absorb any remaining liquid residue left behind after drying everything else up; this process may need to be repeated if it’s a more intense water spill.

Step Three:

Remove your phone from its case and place the rice bags inside with it, sealing them back up tightly to maintain their effectiveness for as long as possible. Even though you’ve dried everything else out first, moisture could still find its way into different areas; this will make sure that doesn’t happen–and because the rice is dry, there won’t be any risk of short circuiting! 

For added protection against being too “high maintenance,” use plastic wrap or aluminum foil over top of these bags instead of closing them completely shut. This should help reduce some extra bulkiness while preventing anything from getting in through an opening between layers (or under).

Step Four:

Store your phone in a clean, dry place (preferably the original packaging it came with) and out of direct sunlight. This will help maximize any remaining rice that might still be inside; if you’re using plastic wrap or aluminum foil to seal these bags instead of closing them completely shut, this is also where storing your device becomes important for keeping moisture from coming back through an opening between layers–or under! 

-As long as your device has been stored properly after removing all sorts of visible water deposits, there’s no need to worry about short circuiting. To be safe, it’s recommended to turn off your phone after drying the water out of its speaker.

Step Five:

Keep all components dry with a silica gel pack or baking powder. This step is optional but can help if you’re not 100% confident in yourself and want some extra assurance against moisture during storage while still maintaining safety for electrical parts (besides, they don’t take up much space at all). 

Step Six:

Allow your device to sit on top of these packs so that any remaining liquid residue gets absorbed; this will also keep anything from building up inside again. The good news is that there are no risks associated with using these materials–they’re both harmless! However, make sure there isn’t any chance of any moisture getting into the power source nearby 

Step Seven:

After everything has been completely dried out, store your phone in a clean, dry place. This would be the equivalent of waiting for nature to do its thing if you didn’t follow any other steps–but there’s still no need to worry about short circuiting as long as your device is off when you’re done (it’s always best to stay safe!).


It may sound complicated but it’s actually pretty simple to avoid short-circuiting after water damage, as long as you follow the steps above! Good luck in staying safe and dry. While some of this information may have been presumed by some people or could be common sense for other phone owners, there are still plenty of smartphone users out there who do not know how to remove water from a phone speaker.

Hopefully this post will assist all those who own a cell phone at any time in their lives so that they can fix and repair their own phones when an accident happens. Please read carefully if looking to salvage your mobile device from being ruined by unintentional spills. This guide was written on Thursday 7th September 2013 and is presented by Jennie Finch…
