Take out the batteries. Leave the battery cover off and let the remote dry out. It may take several days depending on how wet it got, and there's no guarantee that the water didn't do permanent damage. They say you can hasten the drying process by burying it in a container of uncooked rice.

Meanwhile if you have a smart phone you can install the Roku app and use that to control your Roku.
