I would first try changing the key board itself, you can often buy spear ones on ebay.

Maybe still has tea/sugar/milk residue on the contacts or still damp causing a short between contacts.

Try drying it with an airdryer maybe or it may be in need of a new keyboard.

Dry it out with a hair dryer on cold to warm setting, if that don't work then replace the keyboard with one from Ebay as they will be cheaper than one from a main stealer.
