Best keyboard cleaning method and can I buy replacement keys?

I recently spilled some soy sauce on my MacBook Pro. It wasn't enough to do any real damage (that I know of), but it was enough to make my keyboard smell like sushi and cause some keys to stick. A few were also making awful noises.

Initially I was popping off individual keys with my fingers to clean them, and then I looked up how to safely remove keys by using a screwdriver to unhook them. After I removed all of the keys, I used iKlear, cotton swabs, and rubbing alcohol wipes to clean up the mess as best as I could. I think I was able to reduce the odor and The keys aren't sticky anymore.

I was going to use an ifixit guide to get to the upper case to see if I was missing anything, but I didn't have the proper screwdriver to remove the battery. I'm pretty sure I could handle the disassembly, but I'm not sure that it is really necessary.

My real concern right now is that one of the keys got damaged when I removed it. One of the hooks that connects the scissors mechanism to the key is chipped, so the key doesn't sit right.

I would like to replace the key, but ifixit doesn't sell them. Is this a part that I am able to purchase?

You don't have to remove the battary for this operation - just unplug it.

I thought you needed to unscrew the batter to get to the cables...

These parts can best be found on eBay. Also if you are close to an Apple store they will just give you what you need most likely.

Since your keyboard has been used for a long time, based on this condition, I suggest you purchase a new keyboard, not single key.

Um... I have a mid-2010 Macbook pro, so it's less than a year old. The keyboards you linked to aren't even for the right computer.

Since only about 1year, Replacing the key maybe the better idea. And sorry I didn't notice your laptop is mid-2010 version.

I clean the keyboard (and basically the hole notebook including screen) with moist desinfecting alcohol wipes. Just be careful on the left side where the ports are. The labeling there is coming of, if you use such "strong" stuff. (Mid 2010 Macbook Pro)

I also do this with the flat white Apple-Keyboard every month, to keep it white. I know this might sound hard, if you read the manual it will definately suggest some other way to clean your keys.
