The writing may be on the wall for the iPod.

I've had friends that found 3 days to short of a time for a good result with an iPhone and after waiting 7 more, it came back to life. Without exaggeration, I know of 4 phones saved and have heard through friends of 5 more. Patience seems to be the key. Let the rice do it's "magic".
Since this is an iPod, I'm not sure if it comes apart. If not, don't force it, just put it in the rice "as is". Maybe also put it in a warm (not hot) place to speed up the evaporation.

Try to dry it with dryer..
Please, anyone reading his thread...DO NOT use a dryer of any kind on an electronic device. You can rapidly overheat sensitive components. Please trust me on this, I made my living for many years as a repair technician. Consider the Rice cure. Even Apple recommends it.
Interesting as well, just prior to logging into G2G this morning a co-worker told me that he resurected his daughters cell phone over the weekend with the Rice cure. He left in a zip lock bag (rather than a Tupperware bowl) covered in rice and sealed, since Saturday. So, about 5 days.
If you're uncomfortable trying that Rice cure yourself, send the device to Apple where I'm told, they will try the Rice cure.
Last bit of advice. Consider the extended protection plans offered by Apple, Amazon and many others. Be careful to buy the one that includess protection against water damage as that is the leading cause of deceased handheld devices.

One may find sachet's of these in a box of newly bought shoes or other items that could be damaged by moisture content.

Place it on a bed of NON COOKED rice (dry rice) and then cover the top with rice.
If you can get enough silica gel then this is better than rice.
leave it in a dry room with the lid of the container do not close the lid the rice and Ipad is in.
Change the rice/silica after 24 hours and repeat till dry.
A shoe or electrical shop may give you some silica for free or you may be able to get some from Amazon.

After, backup all your important files if it ever decides to break again.
