So this past week i have found a few handhelds that i was happy to find. I could feel that there were batteries in them but i didnt have a screwdriver so couldnt see the condition of em. Anyway they all had popped / leaked batteries in them.

 

My question is what is the best method to clean the battery compartment out? I was reading online and i see either backing soda or white vinegar are the best methods. What do yall use?

I use both, I think the science behind it is bringing the PH level back to zero ... for acid damage; Baking soda. For Alkaline leakage; White vinegar

 

if you mix the baking soda with white vinegar you can get a "scrubbing action" as it bubbles

 

oh yeah , don't do this while eating & make sure to wash hands really good when done ;)
