Can't remove stickiness from keys, help.

Forgive me everyone for constantly asking for help, but I need your guidance one last time.

I recently did a full keyboard cleanup of all dust , debris , chips crumbs etc... and I noticed some of the keys were sticky.

After following Ripsters guide here(http://imgur.com/a/9sHx7) and after I let my keyboard dry from the hot water trick, some of the keys have been fixed but majority of them are now either still sticky like they were before or are even more sticky (I don't get how this happened ?)

Does anyone have any suggestions to help me fix this, as I have run out of ideas of what to do ?

Thanks in forward.

Test some isopropyl alcohol on a key too - you need to do it with it off and give them a chance to dry after too.

That+ if you see that the key colour changes you could try adding a little bit of water into the isopropyl
