Question: how do I use silica gel to dry my iPhone?

I found my phone face down in a wet gutter last night. Not submerged. But it was definitely in water for 90 minutes. I immediately put it deep inside a bag of uncooked rice. I'm on my way to a shop to buy silica gel. Do I need to put the gel in something? If so, what? Can I just put the iPhone into the tub of gel? I've read the posts. I'm probably about to become an owner of a new iPhone. iPhooey. My ibad.

Answer:
Answer:

Silica Gel usually comes in a porous bag within a perforated box. Put the bag and the phone in a ziplock bag together. If you buy loose silica gel just put it in the plastic bag, then put the phone on top of it. Try not to get the grains of silica gel in the openings on the phone, as it will be hard to get out.
