Well that's new to me but wouldn't the electronics get damaged by the water?

Electronics are most metals (like gold and copper) and ceramics. How is water going to hurt them. Like I said earlier water ONLY hurt componets when electricity is applied and when the components are still wet.

Plus keyboards only use about 5VDC and less then 1 amp. Remote controls are even less then that.

Now would I go out and put my CPU or harddrive in the dishwasher...NO. But I have done it to my motherboard and to ensure that it was completely dry I baked it for 6 hours at 150 F before putting it back together...and it still works today. I did that because when I was taken out my out motherboard I spilled a Mountain Dew on my brand new motherboard. That sucked!!!

The choice is yours...don't take it personally. Chill out!

I am just sharing my personal experiences and tricks of the trade.
