More than likely it needs replacing.
Keyboards tend be fairly delicate and if you've already tried rinsing and drying it your best best is to try replacing it.

Spilled soda in a Toshiba satelite C650D laptop, keyboard only, all works, but is sticky, keys to complicated to remove is it safe to remove it and soak it in distilled water or something else?

Remove the ribbon cable from the mobo once you snap the keyboard out of place. No it is not safe to EVER soak a keyboard in a solvent. I recommend ordering a new keyboard. You can usually find them very cheap on ebay. If you were to soak it in a solvent I would try using isoprophyl alcohol.

Place your laptop in the sun light for 3 or 4 hour ,and again start the laptop .Also you will remove the battery and the dc adapter .press the on of switch for 30 seconds.AGAIN INSTALL THE BATTERY AND THE ADAPTER .I THINK IT SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Keybd keys are sticking

Be prepared to buy a new keyboard... Remove AC and DC power before working on laptop. Many laptop keyboards come off with the removal of 1 to 5 screws from the bottom. Some, however, require the palm rest to be removed, then a couple of screws that hold in the keyboard. Be careful when removing and replacing cables.After removing keyboard, rinse with water and let dry thoroughly before re-attaching and powering up. You cannot remove individual keys, so don't try.

User spilled wine on the laptop, I cleaned it as good as possible, it came on but now after I switched it does not come on again

Wine can cause the biggest problem in electric devices.Even water much better.There is not much you can do in this case.Acids and vinegar in the wine can melt up everything inside a laptop.
