Step 2: Disconnect the phone from the power source and then turn it off.

In order to avoid a short circuit as quickly as possible, disconnect all power: a charger, charging stations, etc. If the phone is still on and responding to commands, you need as quickly as possible to turn it off. But do not sacrifice on the action too much time - in case of problems, go to step 3.

Step 5: Remove the other components.

Now is the time to remove the microSD card, headphones, and other devices connected to your smartphone. Many phones is not a small problem in the distribution of their owners. Moreover, the opening of such a phone will void the warranty (if any currently valid).
WARNING! Standard warranties do not cover damage caused by flooding.
So first find out from the seller if the warranty cover flooding. If it turns out that the guarantee was thus lost, we can confidently attempt to dismantle the phone in order to more thoroughly dry - which has the effect of reducing the damage caused by short circuits.
WARNING! For this purpose, use of tools made of soft materials (plastic, wood). Otherwise you can damage components such as housing, frame, motherboard, etc.

Step 6: Remove all moisture (way home) and contamination.

We begin to gently shake the phone to remove excess liquid. We then use a towel to absorb as much moisture as possible (especially in the crevices of the phone). Sometimes you can also use a small vacuum cleaner to suck out the liquid, or use the rice. Rice can absorb the rest humidity and facilitates the process of evaporation. If the phone was flooded with viscous liquid type of juice / Coca-Cola flooded all elements of your phone should be rinsed in distilled water / deionized or isopropanol.
WARNING! Viscous liquid content even when completely dried conductive and may cause short circuits.
