    you turn the dishwasher off and not on at 00:29-00:31

    Be careful! I Cleaned some light bulbs that were smoked from being near a fire and the dish washing detergent ate the solder?

    what about laptops?

    IIRC, laptop's keyboards are removable...

    i guess you would have to put the whole laptop in there :P That wont work

    Your Serious? Won't that wreck the keyboard?

    From what I've heard, as long as you let it dry, water doesn't even destroy a laptop. Probably has to be off when the water hits it, though. I had a friend that spilled liquid (not water) on his and when he talked to CS about getting it fixed, they said if it was only water it would've worked after drying.

    I can't imagine the computer board inside the keyboard would appreciate all that water very well. I had someone tell me that you could do this a few years ago. I told him to try it on his keyboard first and let me know how it went. I never heard from him again, hmmm . . .

    man the water will stuff it up i am not gonna try it cos water a keyboards dnt mix
