    Rice will draw it out.
    Submerge in a bowl of it for a while... sometimes it takes a few days to get it all.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Dude is a genius...I was going to say hairdryer, but a bowl of rice? LOL! Never would have thought of that...
    Make it idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot

    I have saved many "junk" electronics that got wet using that method.

    A simple small hole in the clear shrink worked for me. The condensation cleared right up.

    Rice saved a Mamba Monster for me though.
