Title:

How do I fix my wine-y keyboard?

Text:

Over a week ago I spilled a glass of wine on my keyboard.  I mopped it up immediately and used a hairdryer (on no heat) to dry it out the best I could.

Certain keys won't work at all (a,s,e . . . all very necessary) and sometimes a there was a repetitive dinging and as a letter would zip repeatedly across the page.

When I returned home, the computer seems to work just fine as long as I'm using my new bluetooth keyboard and magic mouse.

Is there anything I should do to open it up and clean out any residual stickiness or does it need to go away to a mac hospital for a tuneup?

Thnx!
