Switch off your phone immediately because leaving it on can also cause short circuit.
Remove all the plugs and other peripherals such as earphones, memory card, protective covers as well as screen guard so that they can dry fast.
This is the fastest method and can completely dry out your phone in just thirty minutes. However, don't keep the vacuum too close to the phone as this can create static electricity which is also bad for your phone.
I know it is contrary to the common advice that we get when our phone gets wet. But, using a hair dryer could push the moisture inwards towards the crevices and ultimately it could reach to the electrical components which are present deep inside your phone.
It is advicable to use desiccants as they can absorb the moisture better than rice.
Follow this step by removing your phone from desiccants. If you still find moisture in your phone repeat the vacuuming and desiccant step.
Also, don't forget to check that every part of your phone is clean and dry. Now insert the battery into the phone and switch it on.
They will surely help you out.
