Would it do any damage to my laptop? Thanks!

Best Answer:

Mia: no to the water.

Other answer:

Mia:
Water+Computer=BAD
Renee G:
Start a vacuum cleaner (optional) and get it sucking close to the computer – get a can of compressed air and let it "dust" the computer innards for you – with the vacuum getting the dirt & fluff away before they can settle back on surfaces.

Water is not a friend to electronics – even moist air is a bad idea.

Do NOT use water. Use Isocol Rubbing Alcohol
Scott:
You don't want to be introducing water inside an electronic device.

Not safe! Alcohol or electronics spray never water.
Adrian:
No, no water. Use a can of computer grade compressed air and clean it that way.
Gogzy:
Electricity circuits and water is a no no
