Rice, silica gel etc take too long, Consider for instance that you have to boil rice in order for it to absorb water. Warm moving air is what gets rid of water; you have to dry it out before it gets a chance to penetrate components. Shorting out of buttons and dials is to be expected, if not a bit distressing and spooky; they are just switch contacts....if I had been close to my work I would've left it in my server room which has lots of warm moving air in it. A cooling oven is the next best thing...just my 2 pixels worth.
