I was bleaching a set of Tamiya decals from the Kremer Porsche kit and some how our new windows leak (whole other issue). Part of the sheet was so wet the I was able move the decals on the sheet. I dried them on a paper towel.
My concern is will they perform the same when it comes time to use them. I figure they should be fine, but not I've never had to deal with this situation before I'd like to know if there is anything I should or need to do to them.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The decals should be fine. I've done this a couple of times where I was getting ready to place a decal and then had to not place it and just let it sit on the paper until it dried out. I had no problems using it a couple of days later. If you do have problems where it doesn't stick very well, you can use some clear acrylic to help stick it down. Or you can use thinned out Elmer's White Glue.
