How can I save a MacBook Pro that got wet?

I, accidentally (of course), sprayed seltzer water (no sugar or sweeteners) on my husband’s MacBook last night. I immediately grabbed the computer out of his hands and turned it over to drain the water. When I turned it back over to wipe off the keyboard & screen with a towel I noticed that the power had gone off by itself.

I talked to a techie friend of mine today and he suggested putting it in a pillow case and putting that in a bag with rice to absorb the water. He said change the rice daily & wait a week to see if it will work.

I am completely desperate here. Is there anything that can be done to possibly save this computer? Please let me know, I appreciate any hints, tricks, tips and useful information that I can get my hands on.

Thanks so much!
