Id say pretty good. Put it in a bag of rice for 3 days and charge it up,

should be good to go!

the rice will pull any moisture out of it that might still be in it.

I saw a box of silica gel in the pharmacy dept at WalMart. That's the stuff in the little white packets they use to keep products dry. That'll dry anything out.

... silica gel ....
Probably better than rice, but be careful the dogs don't get into it - poison (details at:

under hazards.)

Kitty litter. The white crystal stuff. Bury the remote in it and leave it there for a week. Non toxic and works better then rice. Kid has dropped his cell phone in the river too many times to count and this trick has saved them.

I found a tritronics G2 that was in slightly brackish water for a couple of months at least. (Denverton, in CA)
I took it home, cleaned it up and charged it on my G2 charger. It took a charge and turned on. I'm sure it worked for the owner, otherwise I would have heard.
