    Remove the battery ASAP.

    Place the device in a bag full of rice for 24 - 72 hours to let it dry out.

    I agree this could work for water... it dries, it's gone...

    Milk thou will leave residue that will degrade and eventually damage the device. You might have to open it up for proper cleaning...

    Good luck! Hope it recovers.

    Sure gives "cry over spilled milk" a whole new meaning...

    How about spill water on it, after the milk. Therefore, the milk would be washed up and just dry it up (using the rice thingy).

    Putting it in the rice and all is good, but there's still going to be fat and residue all over your device's exterior and interior. Even worse is that it was boiling, allowing for deeper penetration of the liquid. After it's dry, it's probably going to smell bad too.

    Hah, so I'm not the only one with that fear after all. Always hold mine at arms length until I'm fully seated on the "throne".
