    Apple Store, or yourself and some screwdrivers. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned.

    Next time, drink a diet drink; it doesn't have sugar and won't get sticky. That, or don't drink over your equipment. :)

    is it possible to just pull off the spacebar and clean underneath it?

    No idea really. You can certainly try that by gently prying up on it with a screw driver or even a butter knife (something not sharp but solid). Personally, though, I'd prefer to clean it really good by dismantling it, but then again, I don't mind doing that type of thing.

    Oh sure, but they'd probably charge you for it too.
