Fixing an iPod Touch from water damage
I found my son's iPod Touch in the washer machine after the machine had completed it's full cycle.....needless to say, it was submerged at least part of the time.
I dried it off as well as I could (wrapped it in a cloth towel and placed it over a low volume heating device for several hours). All evidence of moisture under the glass screen was then gone.
I then charged the unit for 12 hours and then tried to turn on the unit....to no avail.
Any chance I/you can fix this device...Apple does not address water damaged units as far as I know.
Is this a good question?

I tried to put in rice and it still was not fixed I have a 5 gen iPod and I plugged it in the other day and it didn't break I want to see how much it is to get is fixed but either the prices are out of my budget or the website doesn't address the problem does this really work?
RICE DOES NOT WORK! And will never work.
Read my answer below for some actual useful information!
Earlier today I dropped my iPod 5th gen in the toilet! It was only in there for about 10 secs after this I dried it off the best I could, the screen and on but I was not able to do anything. Soon after the screen went black I put it in a bowl of rice and I'm going to leave it for about 48 hours. Do u think this will work? If not what should I do?
