Don’t try to charge it
Don’t turn it on
Don’t use a blower or try to blow it the water droplets might spread to other parts of your phone
Don’t shake your phone

Right after switching off your phone remove your sim card and memory card, you can wipe it using a dry piece of cloth but the best method is to bury your phone in a sack of dry rice. The rice absorbs away the moisture trapped inside your phone, ensuring that it is completely dry inside and out.

You can also fill a plastic baggy with silica packets (those little packets that you find in shoe boxes) and drop your phone in into it. Silica is a desiccant that sucks up water moisture, so it’s perfect for drying a wet smartphone. Whether you choose the rice method or the silica method, you’ll have to leave your phone in the bowl or bag for about 3 days to make sure that all of the moisture has been removed.

After 2 – 3 days you can turn on your phone and if it turns on you are good to go. If your gadget doesn’t go on you can charge it and if it is still not responding you can check in a mobile repair shop. If your smartphone has turned on and it is running as it should, you should still keep a close eye on it for the next few days, to see if you notice anything out of the ordinary.
