    So I spilled coffee on my CF19 for the rist time at Starbucks. No sugar. Just a splash of espresso. I wiped what I could around and under keys with a paper napkin. Other than that should I worry at all? Bother to use distill water to try clean coffee under keys? Obviously I am typing this from CF19 :)

    isopropanol alcohol (higher % is better because evaporate faster) and good luck! :rolleyes:

    Jesus Christ what are you doing, OP don't do this, anything alcohol will damage the plastic. Leave and go back to the Alienware forum with your "advice", you'll damage someone's Toughbook.

    Just rinse it off with plain or distilled water, if you don't have a backlit keyboard that is.

    Stop editing my posts, toughasnails. You know damn well that "jesus christ don't do this" is not (((offensive))) at all.

    Thanks aaronne ! Should I be in a hurry with that? I never serviced a laptop like that

    Nope, I have regular one. No backlit nothing

    What will happen if I just let it be ? Keys can glue or something like that?

    Rubbing alcohol or aerosol Electronic cleaner will work fine. I have cleaned many keyboards with either.
    I doubt any coffee got inside the CF19.

    There is nothing sensitive to coffee under keyboard :)
    Just wash kb under normal water jet. I also use soap usually.
