    So, basically someone spilled some coca cola on my keyboard, mostly in the return, shift and arrow keys, i tried cleaning them and the work ok after that for about 2 minutes but then the get very sticky again.

    I was wondering if you guys had any tips


    THANKS.

    If any of the coke got to the logic board, it may kill the LB eventually. You can also remove the affected keys and clean them.

    Yup, just take a flathead and pop them off the scissor blades on the keyboard ( I think this is how they come off) - that residue may come back to haunt you in the future so it's better safe than sorry?
