Can I swich off the touch pad as per other machines. If so how?
You can disable it in control panel. Navigate to touch pad and mouse settings.

usually there are screws coming upward from the bottom to remove the keyboard,then you have to remove the palmrest which the touchpad is integrated into.

The touchpad itself is easy to clean but if the liquid has got into the left and right click keys you may have a problem, a warm soapy partially dry cloth will take the residue off the touchpad but the soda may have got to the circuit board causing it to be slow to react.
To clean the left and right keys and under the touchpad you have to take the laptop apart, remove the keyboard and the front cover and clean under that where you can get under the left/right click keys and the ribbon cable of the touchpad.
This type of job is not for the novice and i would advise having a technician do it whether it's in or out off warranty, preferably Dell themselves.
Other than that the best option would be to buy a wireless or wired mini mouse which are much easier to use than the touchpad itself.
Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

You should have a "FN" key on the keyboard and one of the "F" keys should have a symbol that looks like the touch-pad, hold FN while using this key should disable it, failing this in control panel, then mouse and pointers, you should have touchpad setting there should be a disable button/radius.
