    Hey everyone - so yesterday clumsy me spilt some juice on my MacBook Air. Fortunately most of it went on the palmrest, which is easy to wipe off, but some got under the right-ALT key. It's gotten quite sticky, and this has spread to the left arrow.

    I have an extended warranty in my home country that covers accidental damage (salesman even mentioned spilt coffee as an example), but I only visit about once every three months. I'll defs take it in then, but I was wondering about a quick fix.

    Is there anything I can do to get rid of it - preferable without opening my MBA? Anything I can pour in or do?

    Thanks :)

    I would try a cotton swab that is damp and see if I could get in under the keys and mop it up.
