Spilled tea on top of my laptop!



So yea my wifey spilled a nice cup of tea with milk and sugar on top of the keyboard and it soaked in nicely, i flipped it over instantly and turned it off. Placed it upside down for it to drain, in an 40 minutes when i wiped it out and all of that, It booted fine, works fine.

question: Do i need to take it to a technician to clean it up? I heard sugar can do some damage?


HELP.

sure do! sugar will kick your laptops @$$! also the liquid may damage the guts of your comp, and it may seem to run fine, but you may find your comp is running hotter than usual, and may over heat. take it to a tech asap

don't turn your laptop back on til you get it cleaned out.
