    the removing procedure would be different for my notebook,any idea if there tutorial for mine. Also at the moment I am just pulling keyouts and cleaning them.
    Lysol why? Well if laptops have some sort of seal then the fluid shouldn't go through and once it sits for like 1 min i can suck it out with an vaccum.

    The keyboard removal procedure would certainly be different, HOWEVER the point I was trying to make was that if you can remove the keyboard I believe that the best way to clean it would be to rinse it off. The Lysol will do little to remove the sugar that will create the subsequent stickiness. Also I have some doubts as to how effective a vacuum would be at removing Lysol that you have sprayed. Finally, I'm not sure that you could spray on enough of any liquid to effectively remove the offending fluid without at the same time soaking the underlying electronics.

    Power down notebook and remove battery

    Open up notebook (DO NOT USE LYSOL OR ANY OTHER SOLVENT)

    Check for OJ residue and use denatured alcohol to clean up

    Allow everything to dry before powering up

    ^^ Those are all well made points. Well I don't want to personally take the keyboard out quite yet. Do you think i could do it if notice the the key are stating to stick? Or would it be too late?.I kinda want open the keyboard to me last resort.

    It is INFINITELY easier to fix the problem before the keys start to stick. If you spilled juice you should probably assume that they will.
