    Long story short: I puked all over my laptop... keyboard stopped working (some keys). I took the whole laptop apart and have the keyboard. I don't want to wait 3 weeks for a new keyboard to be shipped from Hong Kong.

    Would washing out the keyboard in water or isopropyl alcohol do the trick?

    Thanks in advance.

    Don't use plain water, Distilled water should be ok, but alcohol (the right type;) ) would be better since it evaporates.

    Yeah use alcohol.

    And I would be more worried about the logic board than your keyboard...

    They fixed this problem from reoccurring in both Washington and Colorado.

    I would suggest getting a keyboard cover as well. It will protect everything except your trackpad and display.
