Keyboard works after spill, but types different?

Okay so a few months ago I was folding laundry when I heard a huge thud from my room, I come to check it out and my poor cat knocked a tin of turpentine off my shelf and onto my desk, it splattered everywhere and fortunately that wasn't the cause of the issue, it was me cleaning the laptop and accidentally sprayed directly on the keyboard and all that jazz, noticed that the foam seeped in.

Immediately I turned it off and flipped it over, and let the poor thing drain for a week and a half before i thought about turning it on, but for some reason, the keyboard works... but it does this:

When I press the W key:


When I press the caps lock key:


Here is me pressing each key from left to right:




Here is when I press 1-10:'''


Sometimes when I press a key it uses another key, like if I press 7 it thinks I'm pressing F7, or if I press 2 it thinks I'm using the command ctrl+F

Basically, I want to know if this can be fixed or I need to consider a replacement keyboard. This has gone on for a couple months now, but I hate having to use an external USB keyboard :/

I spilled hot chocolate on my backlit keyboard about 18 months ago and lost the use of some of the function keys and numbers. I ordered a replacement ‘backlit’ keyboard on Amazon that came from China. The keyboard I received was not backlit and I was unable to return it. I replaced the malfunctioning keyboard anyway, which was not that difficult to do, thanks to iFixit. A few months ago the replacement unbacklit keyboard started to malfunction; the tilde and several number keys stopped working, one by one. I searched for a replacement backlit keyboard. There were several listed on the internet but those were also unbacklit keyboards listed as backlit keyboards. You can tell by the shape of the connection strip. I finally found a used backlit keyboard on eBay, plan to put it in today. Will let you know how it goes.
