Help please - I have had irn bru spilt on my notebook. Fortunately very little actually got inside and what did get in did not come in to contact with any vital components. I've cleaned it up and dried it out etc and it is working as normal. Except for the key board. I could not get underneath the keys to clean them properly and as the fluid has dried, it has become sticky and is now effectively crystalising, causing the keys to stick. It is easy enough to remove the keyboard from the notebook. Is it possible to immerse it in something, say alcohol, to try and remove the residue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
i spilt red bull over the corner of my IBM thinkpad recently and had the same problems as you. I removed the keyboard keys with a small screwdriver (they just pop off) and cleaned then with aftershave. all ok now. the only thing i had to replace was the cd rom as it was sticking shut.
My work colleagues have asked 'did the redbull make it go faster'. Alas the answer was no.
