    I use to live in a marine environment and have some experience with water issues.

    I have used the following techniques to dry out electronics with success.

    Hair Dryer
    Oven on low temperature
    Isopropyl Alcohol 91% or better (do not use 70%)

    Obviously you have to take precautions so you don't melt any plastic.

    I use the Isopropyl Alcohol 91% to clean, it will evaporate.
