I managed to throw a glass of fruit juice over my keyboard last night. I immediately turned it upside down to drain, used kitchen paper and then wet wiped the surface. The key surfaces are fine, but the action is very sticky. Any suggestions, please?

It depends on what your keyboard is and how much it costs to replace, BUT it is possible to wash a keyboard in a dishwasher.

Obviously this can only be done carefully and leave the board out to dry for days after. But incredibly it works.
Personally I would buy a new one
I might do both!

Ok so you turned the glass upside down to drain, used kitchen paper and wet wiped the surface.
You do a lot more with glasses than some people. :)

Seriously, a keyboard from Asda is a few quid only. Or if you want a particular feel / particular look to it they cost a bit more.

OK, I have set up the new keyboard and now I am ready to try to renovate the old one. Someone put up a link to advice about washing it, so it is about to go into the washing machine. Should I tumble dry it? :)
