you can try carefully removing the affected key caps, then use a q-tip dampened with alcohol to clean the residue from the under the key. Don't forget to clean the underside of the keycaps as well.

Take a can of compressed air and spray all around (and under, you don't have to take them out) the keys.

I've done what David suggests many times. Compressed air will not remove soda syrup. Direct access is the only way.

If it's dried and hardened it will remove hardened soda particulates.
