A remote control is not a cookie and should not be dunked in Mommy's tea.

Thankfully, after taking the batteries out, shaking the remote vigorously, prying it open as far as I could and wedging a knife blade in it to hold it open allowed the moisture to escape. It took two days to dry out, but it is working again tonight. Hooray. Did not want to have to pay for that when we move out...

ETA:

That eraser is not a cookie and should not be nibbled gnawed. o.O

Good thing you don't take sugar in your tea. ;-)

Indeed it is. Sugar crystals on electronic bits = bad!

Hey, for all she knew, tea may have made it work better. Only one way to find out for sure...

IF it should happen again, uncooked rice helps. Immerse it (or cell phones or whatevs) in the uncooked rice for a few days and it leaches out the moisture.

It could be worse ;-) Paul's god-daughter threw her mom's mobile phone:
1) in the sink
2) in the toy-basket
3) down the toilet.....

No cookies in the house. :P We have a crummy little oven, so I don't bake much here. And since I am a foodsnob, as my friend, frigg, likes to point, I'm sure not going to buy any from the store. :P
