Why bother dismantling the thing?

Unplug keyboard
Place in dishwasher then run dishwasher.
Plug in - If it works > use it.
- If not > buy new keyboard.

Seems like a good idea to me. You really have to make sure it's unplugged first though..

I had a similar thing happen to me - I was at a friends house and had my laptop with me. For some reason I had put a glass of orange juice right next to the laptop, and, of course, managed to knock it over and spill OJ right onto the keyboard. Now, with laptops it's a little more tricky, you can't just unplug the keyboard. I just switched it off, took out the battery, and then tried to dry it with a dryer/heater in the bathroom. At the time I didn't realize that the dryers/heaters in bathrooms produce a lot more heat than a hair dryer, which I would normally use in situations like these. So, after holding my laptop up to the dryer for a couple of minutes I had a look at it, and some of the keys were melted.
Fortunately both the orange juice and the extreme heat didn't do any damage to my computer (except for one - it was hard to type letters m, n and b) and it's still working. I even got the keys changed for free as a part of a warranty check uo

Just had to share
I dropped a protein shake on my keyboard at work once. Called the tech department, and they took one look at it, and said "new keyboard for you!"

I think he only used "honey" cause the real liquid would've been best suited for the rogues den

Getting a little too excited by internet porn Black Label?

Make sure its all dried up then put it all back together and it'll work fine...honey!
Thanks for the suggestion but that's waaaaayyy too much hassle for my lazy ass. I just dumped it and i bought myself a brand new logitech keyboard for 14.99$ yesterday

I just wish it would have been that other liquid instead. It would have been much easier to clean up

It wouldn't work. The keyboard wouldn't get plugged back in following those instructions.

Chocolate milk, nothing happened for a few months, then my laptop died. Opened it up and everything was caked in chocolate milk and smelt nasty.

Ahhhh keyboard messes....One summer night a few years ago I went home to my dad's house (I was house-sitting) and went on MSN messenger after polishing off 40oz's of gin and a few beers with my buddy.
It was 3am and normally I would have gone to bed but a girl I really liked from UBC was online because in the summer she lived in Hong Kong and it was day time there. So I was chatting to her on MSN with webcams up and I was being my devilishly charming self, making her laugh etc, so things were going great.
Now what does this have to do with keyboard messes you ask? Was I making some 'honey' off my own while chatting to the object of my affections while she stared back through the webcam? No, unfortunately I was not that lucky. What happened instead was that, without even a moments notice, some noxious demon jumped down my throat, into my stomach and was promptly expelled along with the contents of my gut onto my dad's new desktop keyboard.
All was lost, the girl laughed at me and logged off and I was left with a pile of regurgitated gin, beer, bile and bbq (if some of you are getting board here imagine it was poutine) with a keyboard somewhere under there. Now normally I would have just said 'F*@# it' and bought a new one but I knew my dad was coming home that morning at 8am so that wasn't an option.
I didn't have much time so I had to act fast while also being in a drunken stupor. I unplugged the keyboard and tried running it under the tap, which worked to a degree but there were some serious chunk issues. I tried getting knife to sweep out the chunks from under the keys but that only spread them around. So I tried to pull the keys off with my fingers to get to the chunks underneath but my fingers were too clumsy and slick with vomit and water. Like a monkey holding a stick in one hand and trying to catch ants in an ant hill with the other I had a stroke of genius: I decided to pry off all the keys using the same kitchen knife I was just using to clean the chunks out with. So I pried off all the keys and the mat underneath and gave them all a good cleaning until nary a drop of puke remained. I also cleaned the desk on which the keyboard sat as it had suffered some collateral damage. Everything was going great, all I had to do was dry it off a little, put the keys back on and then I could go to the bed which was beckoning me for sweet drunken slumber.
So let's get it done, ok, keys dried, board dried, mat dried. Now I just have to it back together, easy, oh wait, ***** ***** ***** ******
I had pulled all the keys off and had no reference for putting them back together! The shift, space, number and F1 keys were all easy enough but the letters! Oh the letters, all I can say is thank the Lord Jesus Price for the typing lessons we did in my primary school because in my drunken state I was able to piece the board back together by pretending I was typing 'All the Right Type' typing exercises! So I got it back together and dry enough to plug in before my dad got home that morning and everything was fine, save for a few keys out of place but I was long gone before my dad noticed that!
All in all, I think I did ok, there could have been easier ways to do it but I defy any one to drink 'til they hurl and then come up with them!

wow, that was long. sorry about that. I guess I have a lot of time on my hands waiting for the game to start today!
