I have a 2019 Bolt LT that I got a couple weeks ago which I park uncovered. My part of NC has been in a "flash drought" but last night we got some rain. I haven't been out to try to start it yet this morning. So here are my questions:

Should I put the car in a bag of rice to dry it put first? It worked when I dropped my phone in the pool last summer?

Do chevy dealer sell appropriately sized bags?

What is a good source for bulk rice?

Would it help to pack the inside of the car w/ those little sillica packets?

Is the rice reusable (to dry the car again next time, not for eating) and what's the best storage method?

Thanks for your help!

I'm laughing at your term 'start the car'.
In these cars, there is no 'start'. just get in and go.
boot up the car?
