Spilled liquid on iPad
Search for key words "spill" and "liquid"...nothing came up.
While working at my home office desk, I just knocked over a small glass of vodka (please, let's not go there).
My iPad is encased in a silicone "wrapper" and that took most of the "hit", however, the liquid did get the left bottom corner.
I immediately cleaned it with a damp cloth and then dried it. Fortunately, not alot of fluid and nothing by the buttons/outlet/speaker.
Seems to be okay, but looking for other suggestions. BTW how "tight" are the seems between the casing and the front face?
Other experiences with this issue?
(Yes I know, keep liquids away from the iPad...don't drink and surf...)

let it sit without turning it on for at least 8 hours, more if you have the willpower. the more time to dry the innards the better.
Bag of rice will speed the process up quicker.

Yup, the bag of rice has saved many an iPod for me!

Soaked an iPhone a couple of weeks ago. Wouldn't even turn on (first thing you're told not to do).
Left it on a radiator for three days and it's working fine now.
Just give it time to dry and you should be ok.
Hope it wasent grey goose! ha
Bag of rice is the best without question I have saved 3 laptops for clients and 2 phones. Used lots of rice lol. But it dried out the units leave it for at least 24 hours
