Spilled water on my Kindle, won't turn on, it's in rice, any hope?

I had my Kindle in my bag and my water leaked on it and it won't turn on.
So I put it in rice. Any other advice? It doesn't look good :(

Put it (in the rice) in the airing cupboard, leave it for at least 24hrs (preferably 48) before trying to turn it on. Whether you've killed it or not is purely down to luck now, I'm afraid.

Kindle is so closed that rice won't help much, I'm afraid. All the new devices with non-removable backs/batteries are much more at risk once water got inside.
Still. leave it for 2 days on rice and then I'd wait another week.
