On my Mercedes? Never! On my 1990 Asro Van -- yep. How does one safely neutralize, then remove the crud off my terminals and battery tray? I know that crap is caustic (acidic?), so would mixing water + baking soda, then spraying it on the crud do anything? I know there's a chemist out there somewhere. Any advice on "safe" removal/cleaning would be appreciated.

Baking Soda

It works for me, then I brush my teeth with it..just kiddin, but after you clean terminals with baking soda, then wipe Vaseline on the terminals so it won't corrode so fast again..

Yes, baking soda and water is the old stand by solution and works well. BUT DON'T LET ANY OF IT INSIDE THE BATTERY!!!!

Good luck,
