turn it upside down on a towel and then maybe try a blow dryer after the water drains out

Find a plastic container and open the laptop so the screen doesn't cover the keyboard. Put dry, white rice in on top of it and let it sit for about two days. Try to cover the whole thing if you have a lid big enough.

Best of luck.

I've rescued some electronics for people from time to time. It works, but like I said, best with a cover.

And yes, you can cook the rice later. Just remember to take the laptop out first or you'll have qwerty over rice. Very satisfying.
