So, I accidentally spilled pop on my Macbook Pro and now my TAB and SHIFT keys are sticking. The more I hit them the stickier they're feeling! I dont know how to fix it! Can anybody help me out?

Click on this LINK. The thread is rather long but it should be helpful to you as you read through it.

Also, if you spilled pop on that machine you've got MUCH BIGGER PROBLEMS than a couple of sticky keys. The "sugar" from that pop is likely eating away at your motherboard right now ... the parade of mysterious problems should begin shortly.

It's a thread where people discuss their sticky keys.






Sorry, couldn't resist.
