looking for a specific thread-Battery tray repair

Okay, I did look and found more threads than I can read right now. We have a break in the weather tomorrow so I have to move fast. Here goes.
I replaced the washer pump and battery late in the summer and now see the white crystalline crud around base of battery and on the tray. The shop I bought the battery from does not offer an overflow bag for battery ( not a problem) However the rust and possible rust starting under the tray is of concern. I bought some Por-15 and am ready to get to work however there was a really good article from a member here who was very specific about what he used to neutralize and clean the already damaged are beneath the tray before hitting it with the Por-15. I have used baking soda and lots of water in the past however this car is rust free and I hope I am catching this early enough to save it. Not worried about the tray so much as any area beneath it.
The member who posted the thread I am looking for was very detailed even down to painting the Por-15 repair so it look good. Thanks
Alan

Thanks I will follow up and call you from the PM. I ended up at my Mom's home though. She had a pipe burst and the clean up and repair took awhile.
What is best to use to flush and clean the battery acid residue as well as neutralize it.
Thanks
Alan

baking soda mixed in water has always served me well.

Me too, I just wanted to see if there was anything else but I trust your advice.
By the way VSTech , I hope you treat yourself to a vacation of some kind after all the crud you have dealt with these past months.
