libbelz, here it is again, just in the link that Jeff Stephens provided to you What you need to do, to get it working again, is to disassemble it using this guide. Clean it according to this guide. Replace the battery after cleaning it. The battery is a bit hard to find and a bit pricey but available here. Rice is a great first aid to pull some of the water out, but it will NOT prevent corrosion, nor will it displace water that accumulates under IC's or even within a case. A hairdryer will not work, it will not dissipate the water out of the iPod. this will only accelerate corrosion and battery issues down the line. there is no magic that will clean it up and prevent damage. The more you turn it on, the greater the damage can become. Good Luck and I do hope this helps.

Take a look at iPod Nano went through washing machine, help? question and answer. Until you decide what to do, leave the device off. Turning it on with liquid inside can only make things worse.
