|There are no drying-out products. Trying to replace the wet soil with dry soil often has disastrous consequences as all of most of the remaining roots get damaged in the process. I think your best bet is the keep the plant in a warm, sunny location until the soil dries out naturally. Unless a plant is badly overpotted in a very large pot, it should dry out on its own presently.

|You can also try sitting the container on top of a thick towel, in hopes it will draw out some of the excess moisture.

|If there's a drain hole - push the end of paper towel or rag in, set next to a sink, and let the towel(wick) hang down into a sink, should wick some water down
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
