I lost my F6 key of my unibody mac pro after coffee spillage. :/
There was no sugar in the coffee. However there is a remnant of coffee which results the F6 key not functioning condition. I saw some brown colored areas under the key, when I remove it.

How should i clean it. Is using a hypo and some alcohol applicable?

If you can get that key off to see the brown patch, then there is every hope that you can indeed clean away the coffee residue with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud stick. Just be extra careful not to leave any cotton lint behind.
