I got my hands on an entire box of spiderwrap and played around with them. One of the things I tried was completely submerging it in water. It seemed to have no effect for the first hour, but then the water made the spiderwrap activate and started beeping. It remained fully submerged with the alarm going off for 48 hours before I got annoyed with it and tossed it in the microwave to shut it up. Water is not practical for deactivating spiderwrap in any capacity.

What are you planning to do to activate the alarm?

What water source are you going to submerge it in? I am going to assume you only have two sources: the toilet and the sink.

What item are you trying to remove spiderwrap from?

Spiders wraps have two types of models. If the spider wrap says 2alarm on it, then it will only set off the towers and not start screaming unless you cut the cable. If it says 3alarm on it, it will start screaming as soon as you walk threw the towers as well as set the towers off. You can usually work the cable wraps off the product. Just takes some time if they are on really tight. You can all so get aluminum tape ( sold at Lowes and Home Depot ) and cover the larger circle piece completely and that will keep it from being detected by the towers. I personally use a alpha key or a strong rare earth magnet to remove them quickly on the floor.

Sorry. I did not answer your question.

I do not know if it is a bad idea. Myself, I would remove the spider tag with a S3 key or magnet.

What store is this?

What item?

What do you plan to do with the spider wrap when you are done?

I do not have any spiderwrap I could test this with. I have a couple Alpha boxes but it damn hard to set those off and the speaker design is different.

If it is some item you seriously need/want... I would lift a pair of angle cutters or high leverage cable cutters. Walk with the item close to an exit, snip the cable, drop the wrap and run out the door with the item. Do this in a different state. Take appropriate precautions.

If this is not some serious need I would lift some small items, flip them on Ebay, then order an S3 key. Much safer, easier, and high chance of total success.

Cutting will trip the alarm. Might as well just conceal and walk out with crowd, let them think someone else with the bags accidentally tripped it

Spiderwrap is a totally different sound from what the EAS towers will alet. It is an immediate attention getting shriek.
