I accidently knocked over a bowl of beef soup that day and it splattered all over the place, with a lot of it hitting my laptop. It didnt directly spill onto my MBP but it did get all over the screen and keyboard.
I wiped as much off immediately with a towel and cleaned it. I did not shut it off because it was working fine. It is the day after and it still works fine. No problems.
However, I am afraid some of that soup got into the speaker holes and keyboard when i was panicking and trying to wipe off the soup. How can i clean it and check it to ensure that none of it got in? (Keyboard is functioning fine though)
Also, there is a bad smell coming from my laptop because of the soup. It was beef soup and now has a really bad smell, mainly from my monitor because most of it hit the screen. How can i go about cleaning the smell? Will it die out after a while? Or should i do something about cleaning it?
I am afraid to take the keys off because I have had one key break off just through normal use. I know the clips are very fragile. Should i go and give it a try though? Is it easy to break if care if taken?
Please let me know. Like I said, i did not shut off the laptop afterwards because it was not a direct spill on top of the MBP (it splattered all over the room and a lot of the soup hit the MBP). Please let me know. I just want to clean it and make sure none of the soup got into the MBP itself!
