Its always better dry it completely,
If you have dis trilled water that will help that if any ionization was there in the the water based Sody-Pop(I don't know the formula to make it, so don't know what it contained :) ) So here are the content that makes water conductive:
Conductivity in water is affected by the presence of inorganic dissolved solids such as chloride, nitrate, sulfate, and phosphate anions (ions that carry a negative charge) or sodium, magnesium, calcium, iron, and aluminum cations (ions that carry a positive charge).
Conductivity is also affected by temperature: the warmer the water, the higher the conductivity. For this reason, conductivity is reported as conductivity at 25 degrees Celsius (25 C). (
Now if the solids have stayed between any connects chip-legs, circuit tracks or more.. the distilled water is best way to clean it.
The mobile service station use the same technique to clean our mobile in in service.
Then dry it off.(completely). and Ta Da... here you go..
the memory chip is ready to use,
Note: If your chip was containing
static charge then there are possibility of active charge effect of capacitors. that might make the chip not working as it short circuit it self. Same as written on batteries 'Please do not short positive and negative without any load.'.
Yes in case of absorbent Silica Bag or Silica Gel is the best. you must have seen it when opening new electronics device from box. get that and put it with the device its best in class absorbent. Or Refer
Old post this will explain in more detail.
