Excess water from leaky Toilet, HELP!

Ok, Ok, first trip last year went real well and second one even went good. Our trip out this year not so good. Had some minor ele issues that solved themselves and to top things off the toilet decides to give us some fits. Main seal at base was bad and the valve that controls the water for flushing had a leak as well. A couple hundred later and all fixed. This is my dilemma, we have no wet/dry vac on hand and most of the car washes around here are too small to get into, how the heck do i get the excess water out of the carpet around the base of the toilet? Stuck a fan in front of it for about 9 hours and to no avail. HELP, need advise hear!

Just a thought

Take several folded towels and lay on carpet to absorb the water. Take towels outside to ring out. Repeat process till carpet is just damp then use fan on carpet. Running the house air will also speed things up by absorbing moisture.
Good Luck !

The towels and fan with the A/C on is a good strategy. If you want a small wet/dry vacuum, here's one:

WORKSHOP Wet/Dry Vacs 2.5 Gal. 1.75 Peak HP Portable Wet and Dry Vac: Appliances : Walmart.com

Could be used for general clean up too.
