So I had a little accident on my laptop the other day. I knocked over a glass of orange juice on my desk and in an attempt to catch it from spilling all over, I grabbed the glass and managed to splash a bit on the keyboard. I shut down the computer right away so I could try to get some to drip out. Now today the computer works fine and everything, but I have a few buttons that are sticky. The caps lock is the worst, good thing I don't use that very often, but it still needs to be fixed.

How can I clean off the keys. I'm assuming I need to disassemble the laptop from the back to get access to the keyboard, but when I do what is it safe to clean they keys with? Computer is a Sony Vaio if it means anything for special instructions.

Thanks guys

We need a model number. The Sony Vaio line is huge....

A google search will provide you with your answer, and we can point you to that answer but if you don't give us a model number we can't find it.

I usually find the clips that hold it, the whole keyboard assembly, down, unplug it and wash it with soap & water.
