Water spill, has my logic board been damaged?

I spilled water some water which got inside my macbook.

I stupidly turned it on after spilling the water. It came on for a few seconds and then went off. I have removed the back cover and battery and I am letting it dry under a light. Is this the best thing to do and will my computer work again?

Is this a good question?

Your computer probably wount work anymore cause it was turing itself off for a reason

But the best is to wash logic board with alkohol or something from the guide to replace water and prevent corrosion

dry up to 48h

plug in and see for yourself, might get lucky and no corrosion in furure (:

Would rather not remove the logic board as I do not have the necessary tools. As The liquid was just water, will it really be very necessary to clean the logic board?
