See this bottle? This little 4 fl.oz. bottle of destruction is what we are calling it from this day forward. I love this stuff. Normally. Found it at Sally Beauty Supply. It is ION brand Silk Drops and I use it on my hair as a de-tangler. Works fabulously. No residue, doesn't weigh it down and I even use it on dry skin. And it is relatively cheap. ($7.99 for this bottle but it really goes a loooooooong way!)
Okay, this post isn't about this product's benifits or how much I love the stuff. It is about my husband's MP3 player meeting its untimely death after a brief run in with this stuff. We left the house and came home to find it sitting in a puddle of this oily liquid. Not good. After much huffing and puffing and storming around the house, I ended up forking over my MP3 since it was 'my' stuff that did the damage. oh well, no biggie really since I rarely ever used mine.
I then remembered about the 'rice' trick for drying out cell phones and other electronics when they get wet. I know it works for drying up water... but will it work for an oil based liquid? Who knows. Worth a try though. Not like this thing could get any more broken by putting it in rice.
So, here goes nothing. I will update you in a few days with hopefully positive results. Eh, or maybe I will be letting you know that I just wasted a bag of delicious basmati rice. Oh well, here goes nothing.
