    Some suggest putting it in rice since it absorbs moisture. I usually put it under a 100W bulb so it dries up. Of you're sure water didn't seep in then you should be fine else avoid starting your phone on for a while

    This is pretty much all I do. Being a cyclist, I get caught in the rain (alot) and I turn it off, pull the battery and set it in my bike garage under a hand of heaven light I have. Got to admit, my lil ok L521 just keeps going and going.

    Another thing to use is silica gel dessicant, which can be purchased at stores that sell guns.
