My 10 year old daughter (honestly - it wasn't me) spilled around half a pint of orange juice on our wireless keyboard earlier. It was immediately turned upside down and later wiped clean with a damp cloth.

To my amazement it is still working faultlessly. Am I:

a) incredibly lucky
b) in the presence of an indestructable keyboard
c) likely to wake up tomorrow morning and find all the keys stuck?

Any suggestions welcome.

It was here in Hamburg that the Rutles found themselves far from home, and far from talented.

Probably a combo of A and C. You are lucky it works now. But downthe road you will probably have issues with sticky keys.

Orange juice is also corrosive over time. I doubt you have got away with this...As posted here, a strip down and clean will help, but it may very well be that you end up having to replace the KB...Not the child..

It may help but alas sticky liquids + electronics = death.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
