    lol

    i did that 5 months ago

    vodka-coke

    if you have a laptop, you need to look up the directions to remove your keyboard and clean it

    that MIGHT help

    else, you can order a new keyboard

    else you can sell it on ebay like i'm doing right this minute

    warning - if you remove your own keyboard be very careful - those wires are SOOOO easy to break.

    Unplug your keyboard, swill it around in the bath, let it completely dry out somewhere warm.
    Done it loads of times.

    Wash that bad boy out with a little water and then balance it upwards and sideways against a standing fan for fast results - I have spilled full pint glasses of rum and coke directly into the heart of my laptop and used this method - it should not work - but it does -

    Unplug it. Throw it in dishwasher. Use it 1 week later. Or if you can unscrew bottom to pull out the electronic board and just wash the plastic keyboard without the electronic board in it

    Take it apart, and clean everything separately. I spilled a drink on my keyboard once, and within an hour I was using it again, just as clean as when I first got it. :)

    Well,I left my keyboard plugged in and took it to the bath with me to clean it.After returning home from the hospital,I realized that wasn't a good idea.My hair is kinda starting to grow back.
