Question about Apple iPod touch
Forget the previous ******** suggestions. Turn your ipod off immediately, dry it up as much as you can, then throw it in a ziplock bag filled to the top with rice and leave it there for a week and don't touch the thing. You will notice that restaurants fill their salt shakers with rice. The rice is there to totally absorb all traces of moisture.
Then look down your earphone jack for a rectangular or semi circle shape between two bronze or copper posts. If this thing is pink then your screwed, because it tells Apple that the unit has been damaged by water and their warranty won't cover it. If this thing is white and your within your year warranty, you can just take it back to the Apple store and they will exchange it out for you after looking down the headphone jack for what seems like eternity. They will reject you if they see any traces of pink so you better hope you get someone who is color blind. Also, you need to play dumb and ignorant or maybe dumb and dumber when they ask you whats going on. If you even utter the word humidity, water, damp, or H20 you will be rejected by Apple.
And for Pete's sake don't send this thing in, cause the Apple nerds will have time to open the whole unit up and check ALL the water sensors. You will be rejected if any one of them is pink.

For clarity, i want to add some words. there are little ICs inside. They run on tiny amount of current provided by the battery. If anytime they get sinked into water, water gets between the pins of ICs . And keeping it on or turning on makes flow current between wrong pins.
You must not turn it on untill it is fully dry, or it may turn unusable.
