    I used a rag, but not using compressed air was not a good move. I guess it's just dead.

    (don't be scared to submerge it totally and shake vigorously) and then patiently letting it completely dry. Of course, there are no guarantees and this process might completely kill your keyboard.
    is this a joke??

    No it's not. Do some Google research if you don't believe. Distilled water is nonconductive and the only way it could harm a keyboard is if it is not fully dry before reuse.

    I would never do that with modern keyboards, unless they're water proof.

    Not eating while in front of the keyboard and cleaning it more frequently helps out a lot more in the long run.
