Wow, bad luck day. immediately flip the laptop upside down in an open position so the keyboard is flat on the table use some paper towel under the keyboard... more comments. to follow... do this immediately
I've seen this problem when the keyboard has had liquid spilt into it, Coca-Cola is the worst. I've been able to take some toshiba keyboards apart but it can be fiddly, the circuitry is on 2 transparent flexible circuit boards, with an extra layer between with holes in, when you press a key the top and bottom layers touch through the hole- making the connection. If you can get the keyboard out/apart it might be possible to separate the layers and clean the flexible boards with spit ( yes, spit can break down drink spills and not harm the circuit) but this will invalidate the warranty.. New keyboard required!
Depending upon how sticky the keys are, it might be easier to buy a cheap replacement keyboard. Trust me, it takes a whole lot of patience and a steady hand to take apart the keyboard key by key and then put it back together.
Try reseating the cable that connects the keyboard first.
If that doesnt help there may be liquid around the connector and it needs to be cleaned off to keep the circuit from shorting out. You will need to find someone with the appropriate chemicals and may have to take the laptop further apart to clean it all up.
This is why when anyone gets a liquid spill i recommend getting it torn down right away and cleaned up, as it can damage things you cant even see. If the liquid has been in there too long it may not be repairable.
