Smoothie spilled on the drive, will it be a write off?

Had an unfortunate accident of a smoothie exploding in my bag with all of my power cables and super drive, the cables are okay as I was able to clean them properly, but the SuperDrive was sitting in the smoothie at the bottom of my bag for a while and appears to have a fair amount inside. I realise this is a huge error in my ways, very very dull morning moment of putting a liquid anywhere near my stuff, but I would appreciate any input, I realise it's probably a write off but I would like to know if there was any chance of rescuing anything from it.

You will probably have to open it up to clean it up at all. You could always try. You will have to clean it out with 90% or > Alcohol. That should clean it up, just try to avoid brushing or rubbing the actually CD reader/writer part since it is really sensitive.
