Default I spilled soda on my keyboard v_v

I spilled a little bit of soda on my keyboard, it works fine but 3-4 of the keys are sticky and it really annoys me, is there anything I can do?

are you sure it's sticky from soda?

pop open the keyboard and clean it....you should see my friends, soda, crumbs, dirt, the thing is nasty I have no clue how it even works anymore.

Be cautious though because it's real easy to lose the little things inside of the keyboards to make the keys actually press down
