We had a little discussion among techs the other day after I accidentally poured a cup of coffee into my desktop computer keyboard. Will using a garden hose to wash the coffee out of a keyboard ruin it? Well, we decided to test it--and it worked!
How to Clean Coffee Out of a Keyboard:
#1-Determine if you are willing to damage the keyboard trying to fix it, if so step #2
#2-As soon as possible after spill spray water to completely wash coffee out of keyboard.
#3-Put in a warm place and allow to dry for 2 days.
#4-Test--It should work.
Warning--Do not try this at home if you are not a Microsoft Certified Professional. Only use this method if you are willing to accept possible damage to the keyboard. Not a guaranteed fix! For sure do not use it on laptop computers!!
