Would anyone recommend powering it up just to see if it still works? I don't really care if I fry the machine, but I do not want to damage the hardrive further.

How did it get wet, and how much of it is wet?  Is it water or something sticky?...

If its fully dry, id say about a week.  Also if your able to take parts out disconnect cables and verify that no water got into any connections. I would boot it up and try it.

If you have a hair drier or air blower then use it until you think it is dry, regarding  the hard drive disconnect it and start the PC without it.

Checking the connectors to the HD shows water in the connection. I think I will dismantle.
