Arrgh! Spilled tea on my Apple Bluetooth Keyboard. I
took the batteries out, and put it under the faucet. It is now sitting in front of a fan. Tomorrow, I will see if it is OK.

1. No. Give it all weekend to dry out.

The traditional method is to immerse it in uncooked rice for 72 hours.

Sorry.

2. I've used the fan method before and it dried in short order.
I will wait until Sunday to even consider using it.

I've had several Mac Pro that have been doused by everything from tea to beer, and they have survived.

4. It should be ok. Under the face plate is a solid piece of rubber.

5. The fan makes fast work of the moisture.
