Sad Possible Water Damage on K70 RBG Keyboard, HELP!

This sounds really stupid but I was using my K70 keyboard while drinking water and I guess I choked which made me spit a decent amount of water onto my keyboard. Stupidly, at the time, I didn't think it was that much so I proceded using the keyboard after a quick wipedown, however, after a couple hours, some of the rgb keys started to change color. Upon closer inspection, I found that the blue led wasn't working. I then decided to take apart my keyboard and let the exposed PCB dry out for a night under a fan, however, the next day, half of the keys still refused to turn blue. After reading some other similar issues, I think I'm gonna give it more time to dry and see if the problem fixes itself. If you guys have any suggestions on how to fix this issue I would REALLY appreciate it!

Blow compressed air on each switch and around the ICs, transistors, resistors, capacitors etc.
