I like my coffee with plenty of sugar and half and half. The Push does not.

Submerge it in soapy water,
Then in clean water twice,
Just to make sure it's clear of soap and sugar!!!
Then put it in a big of rice for at least 24hrs!

But if your technically inclined,
Open it and wash each major piece in water before the big if rice!

Should be ok!

Good luck!

pull it apart first! (and take pictures so we can see!) even if you dry it out and it powers up again the pads will never respond correctly if there is gunk underneath.

You're not doing it right. It's supposed to be more like, "I just spilled coffee on my Push WTF ABLETON why did you do this to me??!?! If you would LISTEN to your CUSTOMERS, this wouldn't happen!!" etc.

but, seriously, do the rice thing. it pulls moisture out of things.

I put it in the dishwasher now I've got it in the oven at 375 degrees to dry it out.

Huh. That is not what I would have thought the sensors would look like. At least you've got a good excuse to go in!
