      A lot of these battery electrolytes are actually alkaline and these need to be be neutralized with weak acid not baking soda. Baking soda will not decrease the pH of the contamination.

      Take a bit of the contamination, dissolve it in just a drop of distilled water and measure the pH to see if you should use vinegar or baking soda.

      pH > 7 use vinegar
      pH < 7 use baking soda
      pH = 7 use distilled water
