If it hasn't made contact with any component inside the laptop, you should be fine. And since it was on the bottom of the laptop, as long it wasn't turned upside down when it was wet it should be fine. - DasFamiliar

Hello,
Electronic compotents can get wet, as long as they are dry before electricity is applied.
Let the laptop dry out for a while before you use it and you should be fine.

How long should I wait? 24 hours ago, the incident happened.

I used it for like 4 hours total between that time

If you already used it for 4 hours within the past 24 hours after the event and the device didn't start sizzling your probably gonna be fine.
