    Did you do it with soap or not?

    MacTipper: With soap. In with the dishes as well.

    Gary, you saved our day. My son had spilled juice on his keyboard and after watching your video we bought a 12 dollar spare keyboard, then put the Mac keyboard in the top rack (no soap, short cycle, and no heated dry,). We dried it standing up against heater so that the water could leak out. When we tried it after two days everything worked. Thank you!

    I followed the instructions - upside down, top rack, no soap, quickest cycle and taped over the USB ports/USB cable. After the wash cycle I left it to dry upside down over a towel and eventually moved it outside on a breezy spring day. The keys are white and clean...and I'm typing on it right now - 48 hours after the wash! Thanks for the tip.
