    Specs:
    late 2012 IMac 27", early 2015 MBPr, early 2014 MBA, mid 2010 MB (10,11.6), iPhone 6 (iOS 9).
    Wireless Keyboard
    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.

    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!
