... can I just dip it in water, hang it up to dry, and have it work good as new in a few days?
Yes and no. In theory, if you used Deionized (or distilled) water and let it dry - no problem.
The catch - the mouse is a closed compartment - which will let water in, and trap it very well.
Dip it if you must (in the DI / Distilled) - and if it's got a tail, use some good ole fashioned centrifugal force to remove the bulk of the water. Follow with some shaking, and finally put it into a ziploc bag with some desiccant or dry rice - and let it bake in the sun for a couple of days.
Seeing as how there is a torrential lake-effect snowstorm where I'm at, sunshine ain't available anytime soon.
Unfortunately, I just tossed a desiccant pack that came with, of all things, an assemble-it-yourself coat rack made from brass. Does brass corrode quickly enough to justify a thumb-sized pack?
Just put it somewhere where it'll stay warm.
Throw it on a heat register / vent.
