    he means undo the bottom screws take the back plate off and try to get to the keyboard... or you could just live with it as it will wear off in a few weeks... i spilt coke onto my extenral mac keyboard (whcih is just like the new unibody's internal one) and it has taken a couple of weeks but now is no longer very sticky...
