Help, Cheerios, Bananas, Almond milk and an Apple Bluetooth Keyboard don't mix!

I can't believe I just done this, dumped that mixture right into my keyboard. Immediately took out the
batteries and rinsed it out with cold water. Took it outside and swung it back and forth, brought it back
in a rinsed it again with hot water and now it's sitting out in 90 degree sunshine and a breeze. Anything
else I can do to it besides cross my fingers?

How about a third rinse with distilled water?

Cheerios are high in sugar. This might be a great opportunity to introduce a bit more fiber into your diet. But I like the banana and almond milk.

As far as the keyboard, look on the bright side, this might be just the opportune time to get a new iMac which will come with a shiny new keyboard.

I would add another two rinses with DI water after that. Pure water is pretty benign, it's all the minerals in it that cause problems.

What?

Cheerios are very low in sugar (1g per serving) and bananas and almond milk are very high in sugar. Maybe a typo?

My wife just came in and said there was some distilled water in the tractor shed for the golf cart batteries.
So I'll flush it a couple more times.

Right now I'll use a Apple USB KB, don't care for this one or I had just gotten use to the Bluetooth one.
I always have a couple extra KB's lying around in the basement.

Yuck! I had a colleague who's computer, office and everything else looked like that. He retired last year and we expect him to appear on one of those hoarder shows before it's over.

It looks cleanable. Just spray it down with a garden hose, add a squirt of dish soap, then scrub with a soft brush and, finally, rinse thoroughly.

Yes, a dishwasher would be better. But I would pre-soak and brush scrub it.

I like my Logitech K750 Solar Wireless KB. I got it with an iMac I bought and even in my dark basement which has light only when I turn on the overheads, it has never had a power issue. If I have an issue it's the caps lock. There's no indicator light but if that's the worst thing I'll take it. It's new for $60 at Best Buy, and some others. Has a USB dongle tho.
