Bheestie Revive – Drop It In and Dry It Out

BHEESTIE_Revive28g_NEW

Have you ever gotten your phone wet?  I have – on plenty of occasions.  I swear if it can happen – it can happen to me.

The last time I got my phone wet was a doozie!  My kids decided they wanted to go try the paddleboats at the campground.  Since I am always willing to try new things – I said why not?  My husband wasn’t too thrilled about the idea but he needed to go because he had to take one child while I had the other.  He took Anthony – I took Sephora.  I will start by saying that my kids have had years of swimming lessons and can swim quite well.  Since we are constantly in pools, on lakes or on the ocean – lessons are absolutely necessary.

My daughter suffers from panic attacks.  However, I didn’t think it would be a big deal since she knows how to swim and did also have a life jacket on.  The pond was approximately the size of half a football field.  Everything was fine until we made it to the center of the pond.  All of a sudden she panicked and climbed to the front of the paddleboat – which naturally forced the nose of the boat underwater and that boat sank right to the bottom of the pond.  Hmmm – then of course we were in the water.  She was freaking out – forgetting that she knows how to swim so my phone was not my first concern at all.

Once she calmed down I threw my phone to shore and worked to get her going in the same direction.  My phone was underwater for 20 seconds at most.  But at the time I had not heard of Bheestie and resorted to rice – days and days of rice.  Eventually my phone did get dried out but it was pretty fried by then.

Now that I have Bheestie in house I keep hoping, pretty strange I know, that one of our phones would get wet so we could see these bags in action.  I haven’t had that opportunity.  But believe me – I will keep them handy for every time my phone is at risk of water.  It is very simple to use them:

1. Turn off wet device immediately. Do not turn it on until Steps 2 – 5 are complete.
2. Dry any visible water with a clean towel. Use a microfiber cloth on lenses, monitors, or other surfaces that can scratch easily.
3. Remove the battery if you can access it. If you can’t, leave battery in device.
4. Drop the device into your BHEESTIE Bag and reseal the bag. DO NOT remove BHEESTIE Bheeds from their interior perforated packet.
5. No peeking! Wait 12 – 24 hours. For extreme water exposure, Bheestie recommends waiting 24 – 36 hours for that little extra drying time.
6. Turn your device on. You may need to recharge your device to use it.

I have used the maintenance instructions a couple times.  They suggest daily but I have done it once per week and that works great.  To use the daily maintenance plan:

1. Turn off device.
2. Dry any visible water with a clean towel. Use a microfiber cloth on lenses, monitors, or other surfaces that can scratch easily.
3. Drop the device into your BHEESTIE Bag and reseal the bag. DO NOT remove BHEESTIE Bheeds from their interior perforated packet.
4. For best results, store electronics in BHEESTIE for 2 – 8 hours a day. Leaving devices in longer than 8 hours will not cause any harm.
5. Remove your device when ready to use it again.

And when the blue Bheestie Beads turn from blue to grey – it is time to replace.
