Well, my first thought was to chuck it in the dishwasher actually. That worked amazingly well too, had a factory clean, like-new condition keyboard after I finished putting the electronics back into it...

I did put my laptop keyboard into the oven though... I confess I had ONE can of diet soda spill into it, was causing the keys to stick and it got inside the silicone grommets under each key so it would not dry out at all. Rather than wait a few weeks I had enough and rinsed it by hand, then baked it for 10 minutes to dry it thoroughly... That also worked without a hitch.
