Midler apparently didn't read our story about TekDry and DryBox. The pair run kiosks inside malls that will dry your phone in minutes and do it the right way by applying low heat and vacuuming out the liquid. Instead, the star apparently decided to use rice to draw the water out of her iPhone. According to both firms, using rice is no better than leaving your phone out to dry on a table.
One of the problems with using rice is that it gets stuck in crevices and openings of the phone. As Midler later tweeted, "Grains of rice stuck in phone. This may end my @twitter career." She followed that tweet up with one that said, "Newest on iPhone saga: so I stuck it overnight in this rice I bought and next morning a tiny worm crawled out of the headphone opening!"
So where did the worm come from? The logical answer would be that it was inside the box of rice used by Midler to dry her handset. But reading that the 69-year old has a habit of depositing her iPhone in the toilet, we might suggest that she read our recent story on waterproof cases for Apple's smartphone.

She'd better check that box of rice. This could become a health issue.

Probably a meal worm but nonetheless she should check it out.
