Engadget - What to do if you spill liquid on your laptop

.:What to do if you spill liquid on your laptop?:. has a very nice little article along with the above video explaining what to do if you get drinks spilled on your laptop. Something very worthwhile for the muscian. The spilled drink is always a major concern for the performing artist, especially when you are bringing your precious gear out into the wild. So what exactly do you do?

First steps.....

Apparently, the best policy is to act fast -- just like the pretty, pretty, pretty good salt and club soda solution for carpet and upholstery spills -- by pouring off the excess liquid onto a towel, opening up the laptop, washing it under tap water, rinsing it under distilled water, and then leaving it out to dry.

Even after all of this corrosion is still a major issue, and who knows how long your laptop will run long term. Anyone know of a way to perhaps circumvent the corrosion issue or maybe dry the laptop off quicker? I am guessing blow dryer is a big "No", huh?
