Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

Coke is an acid, it PH is less than 7 (I believe about 3 or so). you must use a base to netralize the acid, so the best route is the suggestion to use baking soda and water, but I wouldn't feel bad about using two to three times the original suggestion.

I always heard Coke will clean up battery terminals. For about 50 cents a can you could try a little and drink the rest if it don't.

: Also Muratic Acid will clean concrete, but make sure you use some protective gloves and eye protection.

: : Due to sloppynes, I have battery acid residue on my garage cement floor when I was doing work on my 2a. What & how does one neutralize battery acid on cement floors?

: : It's like a white fungus or salt crystals.

: : Thanks for the tips-----R.
