[snip of the rice suggestion. Also hair dryers..]
A basic air flow from any type of fan, including sitting
it in the vent of an air conditioner or a spare 12VDC
computer fan, or pretty much anything, will work every
bit as well as a hot air stream (from that hair dryer).
It just means taking a bit longer.
Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key

I worked for a company that maintained POS systems for Walgreen (when they
were in IL mainly, before they expanded nationally). If we had repair PCB's
that had smoke, rodent or bug feces, or spills...it was common practice to
hot water power wash (not high pressure) and compressor air dry. I had and
never heard of a board not surviving the procedure.

The problem with wet phones is they are usually powered on and
something fries on the board. The only good news is the flash card and
the SIM card usually survive. I found one on the beach that had been
in the water for quite a while but I was able to read the flash card
and find out enough to get it to the original owner.
It was more a "note in a bottle" moment than actually returning
anything of real value. It was in the water for weeks.
