    ive read a few threads regarding the new apple alu keyboard
    (from tearing it apart to whatever)

    anyway i spilled something very sugary over my alu keyboard.
    i had to wait 3 days before i could wash it :) so it was STICKY.

    i put it in the dishwasher, 45 degrees celsius program, NO soap.
    let the whole program go through.
    i then put a thin cloth over it and went through all keys to suck out the remaining water and moist. i did that very thoroughly.

    let it dry through the night on a radiator that was set on a "non bending" temperature.

    plug it in on the morning.. well, im typing on it now. it works ;)

    Do you mean the newest keyboard, the one without the number pads?

    Whichever one, thats pretty amazing! Perhaps you got lucky?
    Did it work after the spill?

    no no, not numpads, **** i have to be more specific.
    wired aluminum keyboard w/ numpad!

    yeah it worked, and it was a heavy spill.. and it was so sticky ASD keys didnt want to come back out by themselves.
    but then i tossed it in the dishwasher and it aint sticky anymore. :)

    so yeah, they made it good. the least they can do with a sealed keyboard is to make it dishwasher proof, i mean, damn, lots of people get clumzy from time to time. and they did it and im happy. great keyboard. :)
    btw this was my first spill in my whole life. :)
