Wet keyboard

Hi, all. Apologize for the stupid question but I am wondering how long is advisable to wait before using my laptop after spilling a couple of drops of cleaning liquid on the keyboard? At the beggining 3-4 keys did not work normaly and I used a hairdrayer and left it for a day turned off without a battery.The keys work properly now, i turned it on just to try but nothing else.
Thanks a lot

It all depends on what the cleaning liquid was. Some evaporate/dry faster than others.

I suggest standing the keyboard on it's edge in front of a fan over night.
