My daughter has had her toenails removed a couple of times. He feet are a mess from wearing stupid fashionable high heels. And then dancing the night away in them. She is now into flats for the rest of her life. Doctors orders. If she wants to keep her toes.

I am checking DC and email, etc. on my phone. I spilt wine on the keyboard of my main computer, my laptop. Now I'm waiting nervously for it to dry. I figure maybe 12 hours or so. Not happy with this one fingered typing on the phone.

Tip it upside down so it all drains out. And then when you think it is really dry, use the hair dryer on low to finish the job.

Sadly, wine will dry sticky and may well gum up the keys. Good luck.


P.S. running the keyboard through dishwasher doesn't work.

Stirling, my personal computer geek, says not to tilt it at all, so the wine won't get to places it hasn't gotten to yet.

I think you are probably right about the dishwasher.

I watched a friend pop the keys off her keyboard, then she was able to wipe it and the keys clean. How she remembered where to replace all those keys, I have no idea.

I could take a photo of the keyboard. But, it's a "chiclet" keyboard and the keys aren't easy to pop. I have no idea how to reattach them. :(

They actualy snap right back into place. They have a spring over a post that is attached to the base and the key itself has a hole that fits right over that spring. I have done that on my regular computer. I take rubbing alcohol with a Q Tip and clean the sides of my keys often. The alcohol evaporates almost instantly. I very rarely have liquids around my computer. And if I do, it is a solid base container like a cup. My problem is with ashes from both me and Spike. I recently cleaned them and the keyboard looks like new. Every so often I tip the board over and shake it like mad. Ashes fall out like you wouldn't believe. I never eat at the computer. I do have two test strips that have fallen down under the keys.

Not all the newer keyboards pop out as easily.
