I have done this repair several times. I had somebody say that apple did it for them for $130 but now that I think about it, that HAD to be pre unibody!
 
When i replaced my own keyboard, I put tinted tape over different groups of keys (yellow alpha, green numbers etc). De-tunes the brightness and makes the mac much more eye friendly.
 
It's a shame that the film layers on the new keyboards are glued together. I've repaired about 10 keyboards in the past without having to replace by separating the layers and cleaning them.
 
Usually if liquid gets into MacBook Pro keyboard it will dissolve traces or the "glued" interconnects making the keyboard a total loss.
 
Fortunately. $35 and an eBay account will get you a new one.
 
Unfortunately a "level 8" difficulty of repair. Almost impossible to avoid stripping one of the 60 or so screws. One of the ones on the keyboard I just removed had only 40% of the screw indent making it nearly impossible to remove. Use a good set of hardened steel bits!

the blue lines are the wire traces you can not disturb.
 
 
 
your best bet is to separate the films where the purple arrows are; get a needle, or x-acto point between the three films of plastic; doesn't matter if between 1 and 2 or 2 and 3 layer. insert on both top and bottom where purple arrow are and then use a 'canned air' to blow the liquid out.
 
 
 
unfortunately there is a good chance that if a 'string' of keys are out, what has happened is that the trace is actually damaged between the layers, where it was 'glued' together.
 
 
 
I had over a dozen keys that didn't work properly but sometimes worked because milk got in there, and on the model of computer, the films were more solid, so i had to cut slits, but in your case, you can see the EDGE of the film sandwich, so you can peel them apart (they are glued), just enough to get an air blast in; if you pull too far you risk tearing the fragile silver trace .
