Interesting comment about water and electronics … I have a pair of sports ear plugs with a remote control (for changing volume, stopping/starting, advancing/reversing) for a iPod, and the very first time I used it in a gym, sweat got into the remote control (funny how the manufacturers thought that sports earphones wouldn’t at some time be exposed to sweat) and since then, at random times, the remote control causes the iPod to stop. Or to start.
I wonder if it would be worthwhile rinsing the remote control in distilled water? Otherwise, it’s useless and not usable.
