    spilled soda over my keyboard: how to clean it out?

    I got a G110 keyboard and I accidentally spilt some Ice tea over it. it still works, but some of the keys are somewhat stubborn now. what's the best way to clean my keyboard? will I have to take it apart?
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    If you feel brave, disassemble it and wash the cover, keys and the rubber membrane mat.

    If it's not mechanical throw it and buy a mechanical one.

    If it is mechanical strip it down to just the board wash down then leave to dry for a day or two on radiator then reassemble it.

    Nice reading skills.Also nice job making it clear you have a hard on for mechanical keyboards. I'm sure you own some stuff that I think is a waste of money.Anyway be carefull putting it in the dishwasher. I did that once and it made it worse.

    Wash it in plenty of distilled water, and then let it dry for at least a week. If it is really sticky, you can use pure ethanol, but that can damage the plastics and rubber parts of the keyboard so only do that after making sure that it won't have any adverse effects.

    Put it in the dishwasher and if it is still damp microwave it for 30 mins, if the keys still stick you can back your car over it to loosen them.


    (not the best place to ask, might be a guide on youtube)

    To make sure, Pryre is not telling you to put the keyboard in the dishwasher. Unless you want to put it completely beyond repair.

    100% unnecessary, just remove the electric components from it.

    s'fucked bro, buy a new one. If it was water, you'd have a chance but the fact that soda is quite acidic really screws with the circuitry.

    A friend of mine always just put it in the dishwasher, and let it dry for a long time afterwards. I wouldn't dare do it myself, but it clearly have worked well for him.
    Only time he fucked up was when he took the keys off, and tried to clean them in hot water, and forgot them, boiling them for hours. They shrunk from that <.<

    Wash it with water, tap is fine if you your H2O is good.

    Let it dry out completely, couple days to a week.

    Or disassemble it, wash and dry parts individually and it won't even take a day.
