If it is dirt/dust etc then it won;t hurt it. If you spill a liquid on it then that is another matter. Depending on what was spilled it may be already to late to save it. Certain liquids such as coke contain acids that eat away at parts. Even if it is cleaned very quickly then the contact pads under the buttons may suffer damage and your buttons won;t work.

Basically you can disassemble to remote and clean/rinse with distilled water only. Then let dry for a few days and put it back together. Even tap water can contain things that will attack the parts inside so you need distilled water. A good bottled water will do.

9 out of 10 times the remote gets junked either from the spill or from the cleaning.

Check the batteries first. Check the battery contacts inside the battery compartment for any rust or dust accumulated. Clean them well with emery paper. Check the remote control with fresh batteries installed. If these do not help you, the PCB inside the remote control that contacts with the rubber pad might need cleaning.
