No, but I do have experience with drinks repurposed as keyboard killers.

I would say it is important to flush it out with good clean water until the
stream runs clear, then dry it thoroughly, thoroughly before powering it up.

If any unforseen difficulties arise then checkout geekhack.org and
deskauthority.net. Those are the two keyboard forums I know about and the
depth and breadth of knowledge the guys have is amazing. Too much free time
and money!
