Water Safety And Electronics Are Not A Good Team

Aug 30, 2008
So you know electronics and any amount of water do not mix. It can and will totally destroy anything electronic. This would include your laptop, your computer, TV, and stereo. Water can damage your stove, razors, fans and your radio. The radio in your car is just in as much danger as the one in your house.

The stereo in your car may be in a little more danger because you usually have soda, coffee, or other drink. Your laptop may also be in danger because it can come in contact with bags of groceries which you throw on top of your laptop without thinking. Most of the time, you are in a hurry to get to your first class of the morning, or you are on your way to work and are running a little bit late. The last thing you think about is the electronic device sitting on the passenger seat in your car.

We use our electronic devices each and every day. We listen to our radio on the way to and from work. We use our computers and laptops to play games, talk to other people and friends, or to just work on. We make coffee every morning and use our stoves to cook on three times a day. We watch our TVs every night while some people have nothing better to do all day but watch TV.

If you happen to be around any water or something using electricity, don't keep them too close together. Never have their cords in a place that you could trip on, causing that item to fall into this water. Be extremely careful with these things around small or young children and sometimes around older adults.

If any of these electric devices would happen to have some water spilled on them, pull the plug or shut it off immediately. Take off the back, if possible, and let it dry for several days. Sometimes this will work, and sometimes it won't. If they spill soda pop on it, take it to someone who knows what they are doing and are qualified. However, there is no guarantee that they can repair it.

Just slow down and remember that these devices are not indestructible. If they are damaged in any way, it will cost you in the short and long run. You will have to replace these items. Most of the time, they will cost you more the second or third time around. If this were to happen to some people, they might not be able to replace things like a computer or a laptop. Be very careful.
