Title:

Spilled some coke on the keyboard, what do to next?

Text:

Hi, yesterday I spilled about a quater of glass of coke on the keyboard of my 13 inch 2015 MacBook Pro while it was running. I immediately turned it upside down and shut it down. Then I let it rest with the lid open and in upside down position. After about 15-20 mins, I was changing its position when I accidentally hit the power button and it turned on. I immediately turned it off again and let it rest. After another 15-20 mins, same thing happened. I was just moving it when I touched the power button and it turned on. Anyway, I turned it off again. After a couple of hours, I couldnt find any silica gel so I put a tshirt on top of the keyboard and put some rice over it as they are known to absorb moisture. Thats how it stayed overnight. Today, I put it for about an hour in sun and now its again under rice.

Now what should I do next? As it turned on fine twice after the incident, I belive it is not dead. Should I just let it sit for another day and then try turning it on? I have checked the keys, they are not sticky at all or anything. I am in Pakistan and there arent any Apple authroized service centers and I dont want to take it to a third party service center. So please suggest what’s the best I can do on my own?

Thanks.
