    Take the battery out and wait until it is completely dry before putting it back in and switching it on. As soon as something like that happens the battery should be taken out.

    Immediately after getting wet, remove battery and submerge device in uncooked rice for at least 48 hours. Otherwise generally you're screwed

    The rice trick does work, takes all the moisture out, you can also use the silica packs

    dropped mine in the bath last week, took battery out straight away, put it in a bag of rice overnight, had a tiny bit of condensation of the screen for a few hours after using it, but *touch wood* its been fine since....

    You could try to put it in dry uncooked rice or silica gel
