Solved!

I spilled soda on my laptop's keyboard

I spilled soda on my laptop's keyboard 4 months ago, and nothing happened.  so I didn't remove the keys to clean them.

Sometimes I feel that some keys are stinky and sometimes they're very good.

But I read that sugar can cause corrosion so I want to ask do I have to clean under the keys or not?

In my view, the best solution is also the most risky -- removing the keyboard, soaking it in hot detergent (to remove the sugar residue), rinsing the suds off the keyboard using hot water, shaking as much water off the keyboard as you can, then encasing the keyboard in a plastic ziplock bag filled with rice for at least three full days -- and removing only when you can tell that it is completely drive.
