Default Razer Blackwidow sticky keys

Firstly, sorry about poor grammar and vocabs.

I spilled bit of mountain dew yesterday and now keys are sticky as hell.
I read people using distilled water, isopropyl alchol with air compressor and putting it in to dish washer. To me, distilled water is easiest way to clean it so I disassemble blackwidow. Remove 5 screws, take covers off, remove screw from actual keyboard part and cord holding thing. Only thing left was removing main board, but they are soldered and I don have tools to unsolder it. So I just put it back together resulting 2 small cracks. Since I cant use distilled water, thing left for me is using isopropyl alchol and I wonder is it ok to use it with out unsoldering main board. And plz don say things like put it in dishwasher or oven.

isopropyl alcohol is very safe to use without unsoldering anything. Assuming you use 90% isopropyl you it'll dry clean without any residue that would conduct. I use it all the time and in terms of getting the "sticky" off, it's probably better than distilled water IMO.
