I want to deposit my keyboard in distilled water and then dry it in our boiler room a few days. I've read in german boards, that this would help.
Any advice would be great! Thanks
I tried this with an Apple Powerbook. Didnt work this time, but i did find it good to chase the water back out of the keyboard using isopropyl alcohol, once the water had dissolved the sugary goo. That way it needed less drying out, (and so there was less chance of corrosion).
In my case the sugar had shorted out part of the power board, which kind of saw the end of it as I didnt know enough about the mainboard to find the blown components when the power board was replaced. If you splilled a sugary drink in and its still working you are very lucky indeed.
