Rice scientifically absorbs water/moisture

That doesn’t mean it works when you put wet electronics in it.

Did the link I post not work?

Your link did work, but it was just the author’s take on the issue, when carefully done, it will still work. Agreed not the most efficient or the best thing to do but it should not be completely disregarded as an option in emergency.

It doesn’t work any better than just leaving it out in the open. It could make things worse because the rice might insulate it.

Rice doesn’t aid evaporation just by being near electronics.

Rice absorbs moisture by itself but i see your point. The dust and powder can make a problem if not cared for properly.
