    I did the same a long time ago with a PNY flash drive and it still works today.

    I usually clean my keyboards by soaking them in the bathtub. There is no power at all in those circuits. Only logic signals

    Normally they will work, they tend to fry though if you plug them back into the computer while they still have water or moisture inside.

    Keyboards and Water

    I once worked in India on a telephone switchboard (40deg C+) and accidentally spilt a few drops of my drinking water over the keyboard... I wiped it real quick, for 2 hours nothing happened, I was relieved... then 60 of the 80 phones it had online started to ring and I could not stop it.... My boss said "I hate you!" And I just shrivelled up....

    When i first read the title of this thread in the main forums.. i thought someone had invented a washing machine with a flashcard socket to play music/ video on.....DOH!!
