Default *HELP* Spilled Juice on my Laptop Keyboard!

I own a SONY VAIO, model VGN-FS720/W... I was stupid enough to accidentally spill Fruitopia on it! Now the keys are all sticky and some don't work properly.

Can anyone help!??!

Get a rag, make it very damp, and gently rub along the keys while the laptop is turned off. Also remove all power cords, etc.

Also try using a cotton swab (Q-tip) and get in the keys as well.

Take the keyboard off the laptop and wash it with methyl hydrate

However this may mean you have to take the laptop apart.
