Spilled a little water on keyboard, MacBook charges intermittently?

Hello,

I recently spilled a little water on my keyboard recently. Cleaned it out immeditately after it happen. A week later of not playing on it, I put the charger in and it wouldn't charge. The only way i got it to work was by connecting and disconnecting it took like 20-30 tries. I tried to clean out the magsafe port and charger with contact cleaner, it made it better by 80% i was able to get the red light indicating it was charging. But as soon as i took it out it would be a hit or miss if it would charge it again.

A week after that i notice that it became even more difficult to get it to charge. I left the charge in for about two days and notice that my laptop was charing. once i unplug it and tried to reconnected it and would not charge anymore. Does anyone have an opionion what the cause is? I've also tried all smc and pram resets.

Also I rebooted my macbook air to the original setting. My apple warranty ran out do you think they will still be able to help me? Please help me I'm a 22 year old college student trying to make ends meet!!!!!!

There is probably still some water in the unit and if you had some desiccant I would say open the unit up and put it in it to try to remove the water. Barring that I would remove the battery and power and place it in a warm and dry environment to see if you could get the water to evaporate out of it.

I think it's too late for that, if there is intermittent charge issue then it's probably already done the shorting damage on the board components on the charging circuit and most likely there is corrosion. I think the board needs to be cleaned of liquid via isopropyl alcohol bath 95% or higher but I could be wrong.

That might work, of course it might not...or might make it worse.
