There is no calcium in vodka, nor are any of the compents pron to rust.

parts of the board may corrode, but more then likely turning it on when wet shorted/fried a chip

you cant' fix it :( better off just buying a new one.

I have an 2007 arctic cat 500 i drowned it and it turned off , i cleaned the carburator , i changed the spark plugs . it has spark and the gas gets to it but it still wont turn on . what could the pro

You DROWNED it? Meaning you ran it into water so deep that it killed the motor? Chances are very good that you've done some very serious damage to that engine. Water doesn't compress, so you may have destroyed a piston or cracked the head.

Additionally, water - particularly if that water wasn't exceptionally clean (like distilled water) - will have done anything electronic no good at all, and chances are excellent that it's gotten into every gearbox on the machine.

Last and least, it may have gotten into your fuel tank. At least THAT's easy to drain & refill & add Heet to.

Got wet and it works but no back light - the screen is really dark

Simply its wet and damaged and your lucky its working. You can try leaving it over night in a bowl of rice just drowned in the rice. Dont add water or anything else just rice. The rice works as an absorbant and it may remove that extra water that hasnt been able to try because it is inside the ipod.

How do you use the rainbow to **** up a large amount of water from an air conditioner tray

You simply begin with an empty water basin, turn the unit on, and gingerly slurp the water away. Do not plunge the nozzle into a pool of water. Afterall, this is a vacuum cleaner, it moves air and the water/debris you kick-up into the air, not a water pump. The standard basin has a maximum capacity of 2 quarts, before the unit effectively drowns. If you have the special larger basin, then it has a 4 quart capacity. If you are trying to remove a larger volume of water, then you will have to empty the water basin multiple times. Unfortunately, you have to keep a close eye on the water level, so that you do not drown the vacuum.

Will the saltwater harm the grass if I drain the pool?

Most salt systems need 3-4000 ppm of salt in the water to operate. (which is no big deal).You will probably do more damage" Drowning" your lawn.There is a lot more water in there than you might think.

Spilled vodka on my phone (LG Shine). Diddnt get too wet. The little whit sticker is still white so apparently it did not get to wet. Now the phone will turn on, show the AT&T logo, and then turn off....

The next solution is about water damage , just try it for your problem :
This works on most mini electronic devices like cellular phones and degital cameras etc . it sounds crazy .
Remove the back (or Cover ) of the phone( or Camera ), battery, and SIM if your phone ( or Device ) uses one , DIRECTLY .
Then, with a q-tip (or something similar), dab the connection points (shiny, goldish) on the battery, SIM, and phone. This should aid in drying.
Finally, place all contents in a bag of uncooked rice (separately, do not put back together just yet). it sounds crazy , but it draws the moisture out.
It normally is working after just 7-8 hours, but I would wait 12 hours or even 24 hours before attempting to use (just to be sure).

beware the water damage, despite being dry now, will void any warranties. Also, the phone's hardware is now weakened and if you drop it, the green mother board and circuitry could shatter - so be more careful.

This does work on electronic devices aside from phones as well. Simply tailor it to your device. If you do not have a SIM (Verizon phones, cameras, all others), remove only the battery. If you have an iPhone/iPod or GPS and cannot remove the battery, simply make sure it is all the way off, then put it in the rice bag. All electronic devices react the same to the rice trick.

Water Damage

Bad news! Sorry but electronics and water (vodka n coke) don't mix well, even just a little. Even if you removed the battery immediately, and let it dry over night, it probably still wouldn't work again. Even if it does come on the coke would make the keys and switches lock up. Sorry.
