Today I spilled some coffee on my Apple Keyboard. I cleaned up the spill with an towel. At first the keyboard seemed to be working fine, but then a couple of keys stopped working. When I noticed that I disconnected the keyboard. Is there anything I can do to save the keyboard?

I probably should have disconnected the keyboard immediately, but now it's too late.

I suggest you thoroughly clean your keyboard, and allow it to completely dry, and then give it another shot.

If it still doesn't work after then, you're probably out of luck.
