Place the device in a well-ventilated area that isn't too warm, allowing it to air-dry naturally. Avoid using a hairdryer or exposing it to direct sunlight, as excessive heat can damage internal components. If available, you can use a filtered air blower to blow-dry the device from a distance.

Step 5: Wait for Complete Drying

Exercise patience and wait at least 24 hours before attempting to power on the device. This ensures that any residual moisture within the device has completely evaporated.
