Laptop keys are really sticky, how do I fix them?

My sister accidentally poured root beer onto the laptop, and everything seemed fine, the laptop didn't break or anything, but then a few hours later, the shift, ctrl, fn and z keys are really sticky. It would take more force than usual to press them, and then it would just kind of slowly lift up, so sometimes it types double. On Ehow, it said that you can pop off your keys and then clean below and replace them, but can they be reattached?

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A305 - S6864 if it helps.

Here is a site with guides to replace any type of key connection. Just be careful when removing the key itself.

Yes. Thats true. Or, you can buy "sticky keys remover" and that can help.
