Its worth trying to dry it out for a few days, but don't lubricate it. Adding oil
is one of the worst things that you can do, salt
sticks to it, attracts water
and corrodes everything !
If there are any visible signs of oil
, wipe down with IPA (Isopropryl Alcohol), failing that any pure alcohol should be OK
