Cleaning a laptop keyboard

  User-BAB88571-466A-423C-B13E5937BE118A4C 00:53 13 Mar 2004

My young son spilt orange over part of my keyboard. Now some of my keys are "sticky" and unresponsive. I have tried some basic cleaning with a screen wipe trying to get as best as possible between/underneath the keys.

Anybody any tips out there... is it drastic measures in terms of replacing/dismantling, or can I simply clean myself...? Any particular cleaning agents?

if left to dry out completly it may be ok.

if still sticky you could always try removing the keys with a screwdriver one by one and cleaning underneath them with some isopropanol achohol maybe.
