How do I remove the keys from my HP Pavilion Notebook Star Wars Edition

HP Pavilion Notebook
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So essentially i spilt some coke on my keyboard and now some of the keys are sticky and the laptop screen is a bit dirty. (The keys in question being the 4, 5, 6, 7, r,t, y, u, f4, f5, f6, and f7).

 

After a bit of research I worked out that to fix the screen I could just get some special wipes (unless anyone reccomends anything else?)

 

However to fix the sticky key stituation: I would need to remove the keys, put the keys in some washing up liquid, clean out where the keys were with special alcohol and q-tips.

 

Unfortunately, upon trying to remove the keys they didnt seem to come out very easily. I was so worried of breaking the keys in the end I left them in.

 

In short how do I remove the keys and does anyone have any tips on cleaning spilt coke?
