Why do my keys keep sticking?

A couple of the keys on my keyboard keep getting stuck! If I jiggle them enough, they normally come back up, but it's really impacting my use of the computer. Can someone help me fix it so that they don't get stuck in the first place? Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

First, remove the key from using the steps on the Troubleshooting page. Then clean beneath the key and place the key back into place.

I spilled a couple ounces of beer on my keyboard, and I turned the board over to let the moisture drain out and left it that way for several hours. A couple days later some of the keys were sticky. My research online to fix the problem showed that a keyboard can be disconnected and sprayed with water, then left upside down in a dry environment to dry out. Several suggestions even said a dishwasher was an easy fix, but that seems like overkill and I would worry about the heat effect; I wouldn't try that unless I was ready to buy a new keyboard anyway. That said, I did nothing and the keyboard work adequately , although a couple of the keys sometimes get a little sticky in humid weather.
