Was cleaning my screen using Colin and water got under screen

Today as usual was cleaning my macbook's screen by spraying Colin(screen cleaner) then wiping it off with microfibre cloth. Suddenly I begin to notice water under my screen and don't know how it got there. Laptop is working fine but the screen is damaged.

Using a hair dryer at low heat should speed up the evaporation process. Just don’t cook your display and make sure the system is fully off!

I never recommend spraying anything directly onto the system! Wet a paper towel or microfiber cloth with the cleaner then wipe the area you are trying to clean.

I know this will sound silly! I use baby wipes (unscented) to wipe the systems surfaces as they have enough ruffness to clean without scratching. For displays I use a diluted mixture of reagent quality isopropyl alcohol and distilled water (50%).
