Welcome to the forums, sorry for your woes.

Keep it off, water only hurts when there's power. Definitely keep it off the charger.

Have you tried putting it in a desiccant? Many of us have used dry rice for that.

Wrap loosely in a baggie, just to keep the rice from working its way in, place in a plastic container surrounded with rice, put lid on, but allow it to breathe, and sit in a warm place. I've used a windowsill and sunlight for this.

If that doesn't work, check back, we can discuss an alcohol bath.

Minutus cantorum, minutus balorum, minutus carborata descendum pantorum.

Remember, it's our forums and we're all in this together - so let's keep it cool!
