A Few Unasked Spill/Keyboard Questions...

Ive searched the Forums for a few minutes and cant find this any where.

Several days ago I spilled some juice on my MacBook(A1278, 2.0Ghz). Luckily it was only in the far corner(where the power button is)so my logic board was fine. I tore it down to be sure. Now the Power button sticks like Crazy. Its VERY difficult to press and it only returns to its "At Rest" position after a bit of coaxing. It still turns on and runs fine, but it is very annoying. Does anybody have a way that I could clean it to keep it from sticking? Dribble iso or ethyl Alchohol on it? Anything?

Ive also got a similar question. I need a new F12(Vol Up) Key and scissor, but i cant find a source that strikes me as reliable. Thats all I need, just that single key and its scissor.

Any ideas?

For the key- that's an easy fix, any genius bar will do it for free, if you can't do that, then check ebay.

ethyl alcohol should be fine for cleaning the area, I suggest you try that (check Soaking an "Al unibody MacBook" keyboard in Isopropyl alcohol? for reference).
