If turned on (System Preferences => Keyboard & Mouse => Trackpad tab => Check "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click"), you can also just tap with two fingers for a right-click. Works very well for me.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
