'''This is myMy time tested method for emergency liquid extraction from a closed keyboard.''' Please note: thus(''Please note:'' this assumes that you know and follow the othervital steps abovementioned in earlier posts (e.g.g., shut off asap, clean with alcohol). It also does not fully address the long run corrosion concerns that come with non-water spill. However, you always want tospills. This process is about minimizing the risk of damage by immediately removeextracting as much of the liquid as possible. My method is below. FYI, I use asterisks ("**") to indicate footnotes. Read the footnotes.

'''Step-By-Step:'''
''(FYI, I use asterisks ("**") to indicate footnotes. Read the footnotes.)''
 
# ''Supplies Needed:''
## Clean, static free, work table/enviorment.
## A regular kitchen-type funnel ([https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cyyjZrZszocnZuRXNIXzE4ODg/edit?usp=sharing|see example image]), I use one w/ a 10" diameter.
## A Shop-Vac.*
# ''The Process:''
## With power off, place PC** on static-free table.***
## Make sure that you have dryer, and cleaned, the exterior of the PC.
## Set the funnel on the keyboard****, wide-part facing down. Begin with the area of the spill.
## Take the extension hose from you Vac and place it over the small end of the funnel. *****
## Turn the Vac on and leave it on for about 5 minutes.
## Move funnel to another part of the keyboard and repeat until you're satisfied.
 
''Footnotes:''
 
'''*''' A regular Vac with a detachable hose will Prob. work but I've never tried...whether it'll generate too much static is my concern there.
 
'''**''' I recognize it's a Mac, but PC is 33% faster to type. lol.
 
'''***''' PC should be in regular open position.
 
'''****''' This should go without saying, but don't place the funnel in such a way that it will turn the PC on (e.g., by pressing the power button).
 
'''*****''' The idea is to use the funnel to distribute suction force across the entire area beneath the funnel. Think about a plunger, minus the "plunge."
 
Good Luck!
