I've accidentally spilled coffee with honey in it on my girlfriend's MacBook. The computer seems to work fine, but now the keys stick. So does the touchpad button. I am willing to take each key off and clean it, but the touchpad button cannot easily (or probably safely) be removed. I'm thinking of taking the keyboard off and soaking the whole thing in alcohol until the sticky dissolves, then drying and retrying it. Will this damage the electronics? Is there a safe alternative? Note that the stickiness has gunked up parts not easily accessible by removing the the keys.
