Neither. Get 99% IPA and do it right. If you have access to an ultrasonic cleaner, that’s the best way to clean these boards. Follow these instructions to clean the board. The problem with desiccants is they don’t do anything but provide a false sense of security and trash repairable devices for no good reason. Do it right or you’ll end up with a dead laptop that’s beyond repair given enough time.

The issue with laptops is the keyboards never seem to survive, so be prepared to buy a topcase just in case the keyboard is dead or even partially damaged. It's riveted in on the Air, so you need to buy a whole topcase or drill the rivets out 100% perfectly (it will never fit right again if you mess one up) and install screws. End users are better off getting the topcase and not taking the chance. Thankfully it’s only $150 to get it with the keyboard installed, but you don’t get a trackpad and that may also be trashed, but it’s also cheap at $90.

I know that. But I also have to get the moisture out. If you don’t know please don’t comment.


@aimeehayworth It displaces it and gets rid of the damaging parts of the spill. Every time someone mentions a desiccant nobody seems to want to do it right and as you can guess, this gets old.


Who in their right mind would pay 60 dollars for something when the same thing does the job for much cheaper?


@aimeehayworth You can get a small bottle from the drugstore for less. That said you may need to come close and get something like 95%. You want as little water as possible.


I wasn’t talking about the alcohol. I was talking about the ultrasonic cleaner. I know that doing that step is the most important one which is why I’ve already done it. Thanks though
