    Sorry if this is in the wrong section, I wasn't sure what section to put it in.
    I've just recently spilled water on my laptop keyboard. It wasn't a lot and I instantly got paper towels to help clear it up after I quickly turned the power off.
    I made sure to keep cleaning with the towel and pressing on the keys gently to put more water out for it to be absorbed.
    It's turned on fine, and so far I've not noticed any keyboard issues.
    Will my laptop be fine, or should I do something else just to make sure?
    The water mostly spilled on part of the speaker, the power button, and a few of the keys. There's no water anymore and everything feels dry, and like I said it was a small amount of water.

    If it was mine I would turn it off, remove the battery and keyboard and leave it upside down in a warm place for a few days to make sure it's dry inside as well as out.

    EDIT : what make and model laptop is it ?

    How would I remove the keyboard? It's built in to the laptop. I'm not sure exactly on the laptop model, but I know it's a Toshiba laptop.

    It's not essential to remove the keyboard, leaving it upside down should be enough.

    Airing cupboard or above, but not directly on, a radiator.
