You should just rub it gently with a towel and put it in a cardboard box with timothy hay in it to dry. I know that timothy hay would make it more dirty, but it actually helps dry the guinea pig. I know, I have one.

well you need to get him/her out of the water and in to the towel promptly DO NOT BLOW DRY it will dry his skin and that's not good...but it takes a while in your arms but don't put him in his/her cage wet!!
