In such situations, wipe it dry and keep it aside without using it for a day or so. This will help water evaporate. If it still doesn't work, then time to get a new one.

Remotes also can take some abuse. But depending on the design of the buttons, operating the buttons can cause some water to enter inside. By trying to test the remote (which is the first thing we instinctively try), we actual increase the risk of spoiling it. The remote may actually have survived if we did not test it when that happened !

Mahindra Xylo keys are having very low build quality, not just that the rubber key will get corroded and circuit board is exposed, but also the tiny screws get rusty and won't be able to unscrew after a couple years' use.
