if you are careful, you can use a flat nylon probe or spudger to lift the key free from the scissor lift mechanism. Go from the bottom of the key, not the sides.
 
Here is a nice website with a lot of explanation and nice pics:

I wouldn't use metal as he has, since you will run a higher risk of damage. Since your goal is not to rearrange the keyboard, but to clean under a few keys, I would remove them one at a time. A Q-tip moistened in alcohol will help remove the dried spill, be sure to remove the battery from the computer, so you don't accidentally short anything out. Don't remove the rubber nub which is under each key - doing so will render the key non-functional!
