I spilled most of a 32oz Coke on my MBP 17", fortunately it wasn't plugged in at the time. The next day I (with the help of iFixit) completely tore down my laptop and then scrubbed off all the cola--whichcola on the logic board--which was EVERYwhere--with a 100% solution of isopropyl alcohol, let it dry then rinsed it in the sink with some distilled water. I let that dry overnight and put it all back together and it worked just fine...that was 3 years ago and I'm typing this on the very same MBP. Good luck!
