Wet plug

Hello. I managed to splash the PSU to my lights whilst doing some maintenance. I got an interesting electric shock when I plugged them back in. I'm currently drying the PSU out the best I can (submerged in a bag of rice with a fan blowing at it) I can't be the first person to do this, has anyone successfully dried out a PSU/plug in similar circumstances?

It should be just fine. I've accidentally dumped large amounts of saltwater into outlets and created a hell of a light show. Dried out without issue.

Oh my! That would scare the heck out of me.
