I've already googled it, but there's not much info on what to do about a lotion spill specifically. I don't know if the fact that it's lotion (as opposed to a thinner liquid) makes a difference, so I'm asking for advice. I opened a tube of hand lotion and it sort of exploded. A bit splattered onto my keyboard (the splatter was about quarter sized, or a bit bigger). I cleaned it off with a tissue, but then noticed some of the keys were typing the wrong letters when I used the keyboard. So I removed the keys around the area of the spill. I only saw trace amounts of lotion in the crevices, which I cleaned out; this leads me to hope that the lotion didn't trickle any further into the inside of the laptop. But I never got the keys working right. I shut down the laptop and removed the battery, and now I have it sitting upside down (hoping that will prevent it from leaking further in). What else should do? Is lotion as much of a threat as liquid? I'm really scared right now. I really, really need this laptop for work and can't afford a new one. The laptop is a late 2008 13" Aluminum Macbook. I don't know if this is important, but just in case: some of the keys that weren't working properly were not the keys that the lotion spilled on. At least one malfunctioning key was on the opposite side of the keyboard from the spill.
