Spilt small amount of tea on my MacBook

I spilt a bit of tea (really not that much) on my laptop (recent MacBook Pro). The laptop has one of those plastic keyboard covers so I really didn’t think it would do much harm. I saw it get on the speakers a bit. It has stopped turning on, the apple logo came up quickly one or twice and it has occasionally made the sound that it usually makes when the charger is plugged in.

Please let me know what I can do, thanks.

Turn it off. Take the battery out. Turn it upside down and dab off any liquid. I hope there was no sugar in the tea. Put it somewhere for at least 24 hours. Pray

No sugar in the tea. I am praying really hard.

Be patient - friend did the same with beer last week - took 5 days to totally come back to life, now all appears well.

Ok thanks for reassuring me! Cross my fingers
