Hi,
Usually it is easier to simply replace the keyboard than to try and fix it, as you can create more problems than what you had in trying to repair it.
Here is a link to the [http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04825517|service manual] for your laptop.
Scroll to p.48 to view the necessary pre-requisite steps and then the procedure to remove the keyboard.
Also on p.48 you will find the part number(s) for the keyboard.
-Search online using the part number appropriate to ''your exact model'' ''only'' in the browser search box to find suppliers of the part.
+Search online using the part number appropriate to '''your exact model''' ''only'' in the browser search box to find suppliers of the part.
(Not sure of this but usually the part number is also printed on the underside of the keyboard)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You should also inspect the rest of the laptop when you have removed the keyboard in case the soda has caused any damage to other parts of the laptop e.g. the motherboard, trackpad etc.
If you can see any damage such as corrosion etc, remove the battery (which should be out anyway) and clean the affected areas using Isopropyl Alcohol 90%+ (available at most pharmacies) to clean it away.
Here's a link that explains what to do.
