Any liquid getting inside the laptop is running the risk of shorting it out and turning it into an electric brick.  Is it worth that just to clean it?  So, do not POUR  or SPRAY anything on it, even a little bit.

 

About all you can do is dampen a cloth, so that is is barely wet, and lightly wipe that cloth across the keys, taking care to not get any of the liquid between the keys or on the base of the unit. 

 

Even this is risky, and if it were mine, I would not do it.

 

It's your PC, it's your call -- but be aware that if you damage it by getting it wet, that is considered Accidental Damage and is not covered by the HP warranty.
