I was in the bath the other day and made the mistake of keeping the phone near the towel rack. so it wasnt in the water but it was in the bathroom so it got a bit steamed up underneath the touchscreen.

there are a few marks underneath the touchscreen which hasnt cleared up air or water bubbles i dont know how to describe it

please advice what i should do?! thanks for your help guys

Take the battery out and put the BB in a bag of rice for a few days to try and absorb the moisture.

Placing it under sunlight for 2 days (no battery) will also work.

I'm a fan of dessicant (aka silica gel) packs in a ziplock bag. They look like this and can be found in certain sporting goods stores, Walmart, hobby and/or craft stores that have a dried flowers section.
