2015 MBP- Can I safely pop off butterfly keys?

So I spilled a smoothie on my brand spankin new MBP 2015 (latest model), and thankfully, everything still works properly. My only complaint is that a couple of the keys are a little sticky/stiff, and I really want to pop off the keys and remove what's underneath. However, I don't want to risk breaking any keys without first having expert opinions (keep in mind, this keyboard has the new BUTTERFLY mechanism instead of the traditional scissor mechanism). How can I safely pop off the keys? I tried to find answers on youtube and other places on the internet, and found nothing.

I have the same problem. Did it work with a thin prying tool and is it also easy to get them back together?

You can safely pop off the keys using a thin prying tool. iFixit used one of their opening picks but really anything thin with little to no flex should work just fine.

It's easy to get off - just hard to re-fasten in a way that seems to stay on. I'm headed to the apple store tomorrow to get some assistance in re-securing it.
