raw hide, completely wet, what to do?

A friend has a fawn that he skinned and fleshed it, but he rinsed it to get the blood out of it. What steps can he take without ruining the hide? It is thawing now and needs salted. should it be completely dried,(the hair side)?

I have an old washing machine in my shop that i spin hides with. If you are able to do that, it will be pleny dry for salting.

wrap it in towels
