You can try to shake it up and mix the wet substrate with the drier portions. That's if it's shake able. Other then that, I can't think of a safe way to remove the extra water at this point.

o.k i think i'm gonna put the jar in a bag, then unscrew the lid and tip.does this sound like a good idea? should i use a kitchen bag or a big zip lock?

Unscrew it and tip, then what? You mean like pouring the excess water out? That might work.

Try to work in a ziplock or garbage bag, yeah. Use a disinfectant on all the inside work surfaces too. (alcohol, 1:10 bleach/water, etc)

If you have so much standing water that it will just pour like that though, I think your substrate is toast.
