Have you ever popped open the hood of your vehicle and noticed white residue buildup surrounding the battery posts? This is a sign of corrosion. Larger buildups of corrosion slow the charge of your vehicle's battery. A battery without a full charge will have difficulty starting. Maintaining a clean battery for your vehicle will result in your vehicle's optimal performance.

Once you’ve checked for corrosion, ensure you clean the battery. Here are a few simple steps to for cleaning your car battery at home:

  • Start by removing the battery terminals
  • Next, grab a wire brush and clean the white buildup off the battery posts with baking soda mixed in water
  • After scrubbing until all buildup is gone, rinse off the battery posts and dry with an old soft rag
  • Finally, replace the battery terminals back
