Unhappy Sticky Question

Shan's Laptop's Keyboard - 0
12 oz Can of Mountain Dew - 1

I knocked over a can of mountain dew on my laptop's keyboard

I have a bottle of electronics cleaner at the house and am wondering, should I take the keyboard out and douse it with the cleaner? Or should i be more gentle??

yep, and it appears the pop won the battle. oh well i found a keyboard on ebay for $30 with shipping, which is a hell of a lot better than the people that toshiba reffered me to for $150 + shipping....it shipped on thursday so it should be here monday or tuesday...hopefully
