I spilt nail polish remover on my phone charger . Can I charge it ?

I spilt a whole bottle of nail polish remover over my phone while it was charging . I immediately turned the plug off because I didn’t want to get set on fire. I cleaned my phone and unplugged it but it still smells like polish remover . I wiped my charger and it’s  dry but it smelsl like polish remover. I don’t want to risk it . How long should I wait ?

    Nail polish remover is mostly acetone, unless you're using something different. It's pretty volatile and will flash off fairly quickly.

    If you wiped off as much of the stuff as you could, give it overnight to flash off the rest of any liquid that might have gotten into any crevices. Acetone is conductive and you want to give it plenty of time to evaporate away.

    No, sorry. You can't charge nail polish remover. That's just silly.

    The acetone will evaporate quickly but the odor will linger for some time. You should be fine charging it now as long as you dried it all off.
