    Default I washed an iPod, help!

    I have a sleepover under way -3 tween girls. I asked for the sheets they had last night to wash and I've just gone to hang them up and realised I have washed an iPod touch. Of course it doesn't work. Any advice? I have it in a bowl of rice out in the sun.

    The girl is ok, but her Mum doesn't know yet.

    I would have done the rice thing also. See how it goes in a few hours.

    Good luck!

    Keep it in the rice (but in an airtight container) for a few days.

    Been there. Sorry but say goodbye
    It may work if you allowed the iPod to completely dry inside but touching it.
    My son drop mine in the toliet and was in water as a matter of seconds. I had in rice in the sun for days before I touch it and it didn't work.
    You could try taking to a repair shop?

    Take the battery out, and submerge both ipod and the battery in a container of rice and pray for the best lmao.

    If it was me, Id be giving them the cash for a new one. Even if it does work again, you're going to have to tell them you washed it and then if anything goes wrong with it down the line it will be assumed its your fault for washing it.

    The kids gave me the sheets as I was standing at the washing machine, these are 12yos. I feel bad but at this age it is their responsibility not mine.

    I washed an iPod 3 years ago in a top loading washing machine. It's still going strong today. I just left it in the sun for a few hours. Like pp said though anything that goes wrong with it from now on could be blamed on it being washed. I'd just ask the parents to let you know If it's no good and then replace it.

    *I* agree, but would you be fine if your teen slept at a friends house and the same thing happened to the (roughly) $200 ipod you bought for them? Im not saying youre in the wrong, Im just saying what I would do in that situation.
