I don't believe the keys will pop off. You'll need to clean them carefully with GooGone or something similar. Might just be easier to buy a new keyboard and install it if you're handy enough. They're generally pretty easy to install but a quick ebay search shows them running about $50.

I spilled Kool Aid on my keyboard one time. Its honestly a pain in the *** to clean sticky keyboard keys so I suggest getting a new keyboard unless you know what your doing.

If you do chose to clean it move slow and be careful, some white pad pieces under the keys fell out while I tried to clean mine and even though I put them back it didnt work right.

The whole right side of the keyboard never did work again.
