You should submerge your phone in a bowl of dry rice for at least 24 hours if it is wet.
  • Why put your phone in rice?

A common accident with mobile phones is to drop them in water or spill some form of liquid on them. Many people believe that once their phone has been thoroughly soaked in such a way, it will never work again; but there are ways to help your phone recover and many phones will work once they have dried out.

One way to help it dry out is to submerge it in a bowl of dry rice and the rice should submerge the moisture inside the phone.
  • What you should do if your phone gets wet
If your phone gets wet, the first thing you should do it take out the battery and the SIM and dry the phone as best you can with a towel. You need to dry it as quickly as possible but do not be tempted to use a hair dryer or put it somewhere extremely hot, such as a microwave or an oven, as this will damage the phone.

If you have a radiator or heater that can be set at a very low temperature, you could place a towel on the radiator and place your phone on the towel. If you chose to do this, do not leave your phone for too long and keep an eye on it in case it gets too hot. If the phone does get too hot, the components inside will melt or warp.
If your phone has been soaked by salt water or a liquid other that water, it may be a good idea to rinse it with fresh water before you begin drying it. Salt or the sticky residue left by drinks will damage your phone.

At least a week, and have a fan blowing across it to carry away any moisture that's not absorbed by the rice.
