A Tip or Two- Battery Corrosion #3

In the past couple of weeks, I have given you tips to remove battery corrosion from electronic devices and rechargeable devices. Today, I am going to address removing corrosion from your car battery. If you aren't comfortable doing this yourself, do not hesitate to ask a friend or relative who is more mechanically inclined or take it to a garage.

Corrosion on a car battery's terminals can make your car hard to start or not start at all. If untreated, it can ruin a battery which is expensive to replace. Luckily, the prevention is easy and cheap.

There are many tutorials on how to clean your car's battery using baking soda (to neutralize the battery acid and eat away the corrosion), but this one from HowToCleanStuff.net is the best one I've found and they say it a lot better than I could.
