taake the door panel apart and use something that dispels water to spray on all the connectors. I would unplug/spray/plug every connector you can.

wd40 dispels water/

Something that worked for my blackberry (I dropped it in my dogs water bowl) was putting it in uncooked white rice. It soaked up all the water. I would do the same with the window switches. If you use anything that blows you risk pushing the water further into the electronics.

You'll have to "reprogram" the switch.

Pull the window switch up and close the window completely, then pull and hold the switch for 1 second."

I've seen that work on a phone myself. You should give it a try.
