Hi,
Last week I spilled around hald a cup of tea on my macbook air. I don't really know how much of it actually got on my keyboard. It wasn't plugged in, so I immediately flipped it over and after around 30s shut it down. Then cleaned the remains with a paper towel, left it upside down in a warm room for 3,5 days. When I turned it on 2 days ago, it was all ok.
But now I an wondering whether there could be damage appearing only after days-weeks-months???Thanks a lot

Unfortunately, yes, there could. It seems to be quite a frequent damage pattern for liquid-induced damages, even. Because apart from the immediate short-circuit potentially caused by the liquids, the water, sugars etc. cause corrosion and other deterioration over time.

Hello & welcome to the forum! :) In the meantime, take at look at the forum's official Sticky on the topic of liquid spills.

Hope all goes well w/ your laptop but problems may occur w/ time, as already stated - good luck! Dave
