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

In some cases you can make it work by cleaning the motherboard using a toothbrush and alcohol. It's necessary to remove the motherboard from the laptop and inspect for any liquid damage/corrosion.

You have to be gentle but you can use a tech sized screwdriver and pull the key off. From there you can clean if up a bit more thoroughly.

Was it just water or was there any salt or sugar in the liquid water? Did you set the Macbook vertical ( so the water would not sit on the motherboard?
BTW: The first thing you should have done after water spillage was to remove power and the battery!

How to fix an apple mac keyboard after a water spill


Let it dry out in an open area for about 48 hours. Get a towel and try to gently press down on the keyboard to soak up as much water as possible. Have it set upside down with the screen open so the water can fall out of the keyboard rather than possibly leak into the inside.
