Spilled pop on my laptop

Specs: Windows XP
I spilled pop on my laptop keyboard and was looking for how to clean it. The keys stick and it's very hard to type. I see other people's answers to this but I can't just buy a new keyboard, b.c. it's a laptop.
What do i do?

"I can't just buy a new keyboard,"

Actually it most likely is a single part. You'd have to remove it from the laptop. Some get kind of tricky to take apart. See the company that made it for their web site. Might have how to disassemble.

Once the keyboard is removed you might take distilled warm water and try to douse it to clean it. Then dry with shop vac blowing side air.

If fails after cleaning see about buying one.

After all that work you might be better off giving it to a re-sale or goodwill shop and buy a new one. Take the tax credit.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

It's amazing what you'll find if you simply search this site:


Or use an external keyboard.
