    <<...isopropyl...>>

    ...70%, 91% or 100%? The point being that there may be some water that has infiltrated the interior of the keyboard.

    If you think that's a possibility, my suggestion is to let the keyboard sit by a sunny window for at least a day or two to ensure that any interior water evaporates. Then try it again.

    PS: Don't use your oven or an aggressive heat source like a hairdryer...!

    ...As long as it's using generic BlueTooth connectivity, I don't know why it wouldn't. But if you're thinking in that direction, any BlueTooth KB would work; why limit yourself...?
