dry it out fully...you might be lucky, may need recoding tho.

worse case scenerio is you have fully destroyed the chip board.

i put my ipod in a washing machine, twice, and it still lives today...that may give you some confidence

If its still wet use clean water to flush away any salt deposit. Then leave it to slowly dry in a airing cupboard or similar with with the case open dry battery contacts and replace battery. Used to be a computer engineer the amount of times users spilled bloody tea,coffee or juice and we had to strip and dry the damn things in the office. But it worked for them most times depending how long it was left for. you might be lucky

Never tried it myself but supposedly sticking it in a bowl of dried rice for 24 hours should get rid of excess moisture. completely cover it in the rice. Good luck
