Default Fixing a keyboard

My keyboard stopped working properly because I spilled water on it. I'm on my mobile phone right now so I'm limited to my resources. What are some ways to clean / fix the keyboard?

Let it dry. If it is a good keyboard it should still work after the liquid dries.

I do not accept support questions via EMail, PM, IM or my G+ page!

You could also speed the drying process up with some air if you have a compressor.

I do not recommend taking it apart as the little rubber things under the keys are a pain to put back in.
