That is quite the spill! First power off and unplug the mouse.

if the spill was low and the lense on the mouse if fouled, then a quick wipe with a wet windex or achol on a towel will clean the lense. if it is not and was a heavey spill then you may need a Q tip to lightly clean the laser/LED. If this was on top of the mouse and it shorted out unless you are talented at a solder iron, just toss the mouse and get a new one.
If the photo above is incorrect such as it is a wireless mouse then you can take out the batteries, clean the contacts with an achol swab and if there are any screws on the mouse take them out and put the whole mouse in a zip lock of rice. this generally only works if it is fresh and the rice can take out the moisture. if its old try it but throw out the rice when your done, it not worth the contamination of possible battery acid.
PS try new batteries too as they could have shorted but again this is if it was a wireless.

Mouse buttons spontaneously click themselves


I'm afraid that keyboards and mice don't like tea much at all. You can pick up keyboards and mice cheap enough and to be honest they are just not worth repairing. Even a tin of Servisol Video 40, which you can spray on the contacts to clean them will cost you as much as a mouse would!

Before you do anything, unless it is already dried, (turn it off first!) turn the laptop upside down and gently tap the back to coax any liquid out. Then do NOT turn it on until it is totally dried. You can clean the keys and pad it with a DAMP (NOT wet) cloth with plain soap and water. Be careful not to get any water down into the keyboard itself so it doesn't short it out. However this will not clean whatever liquid may have gone inside. Hopefully none did else you could end up with a bigger problem...

Spill water on my macbook air, and does not turn on


gone with the wind....or shall i say....water....
dump it in the trash bin....
all liquids are enemy of any IC equipments.....
(many have this dirty habbit of drinking Tea/Coffee/Beer etc while working with their notebooks/laptops.....)
on PC..... the liquids normaly spill on to the keyboard/mouse which is seperate from the CPU...
can replace the keyboard of a PC with just few $$$
but with notebooks the main circuit/motherboard is just below the keyboard.....
once a liquid falls...it just goes thru the holes on the keyboard....and short circuits the ICs...chips...etc

Spilled tea on computer 7 repair technician says we need the motherboard


Did you saw the tea entering on the main motherboard? Did it worked after tea spilled in it? Water or any solution which contains water in it, which have short circuit on electronic boards, so it might had been damaged. Other important thing is, the computer motherboard contains microchip which is most likely to get damaged in small presence of small amount of water entering in it. So think twice about the amount of spill and then apply some idea, is the technician giving right diagnose, or you need another tech for this problem?

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.
