How do you all remove corrosion from leakin batteries in electronics like radios,toys,walie talkies,etc.I have had good success lightly scraping it off and treatin with WD-40.But was thinkin of a liquid rust remover to use where the batteries attach.Coca-cola supposed to work,any ideas?

You can use baking soda with a little water. It works great. Use a q-tip dip it the water with baking soda in it. Nothing works better for removing the corrosion caused by battery acid in my experience. Then use a small wire brush on the contacts. It's what I work with every day.

I first used a little Coke and then went with BS.Let it soak for awhile then gently used a tooth brush.It is helpin but don,t think all of the rust will be removed.Can,t use a wire brush cause the parts are to fragile I think.Thanks.

<span style="font-weight: bold"> Try using a piece of wet-dry 600-800 grit sandpaper on those stubborn rust spots...</span>
