Self Pollinating Corn - How Long Until Watering?

I have just self pollinated my corn. How long do I have to wait till I can water my garden? I don't want the pollen to wash off the silks.

The pollen attaches to the silk within minutes or hours so sprinkle irrigating the next day is fine.

Thanks! It poured rain last night so I am glad I did it in the morning.
