How to clean a car battery with coke

We all value our transportation. We all like to keep our vehicles looking good.
What about under the hood? The battery is a vital part of the car. Its the heart.
Replacing one is rather pricey, so why not make sure the one we have stays in good shape? You're battery is under the hood of your vehicle, having access
to water,oil,and other fluids you my put in your vehicle. The battery terminals also called posts, and the cables (if your battery has cables) can get rusty. Rust, corrosion, and any other dirty build ups that may occur. This can potentially cause problems with the battery, such as: lack of full power, loose terminal cables. The terminal cables are the cables attached to the terminal posts. So your battery should be cleaned sometimes so these issues don't occur. You can buy many different cleaning solutions at any auto shop store, but they can be pricey, and everyone likes saving money. I have a cheap trick that will save you money and may work better than those other cleaning solutions. And that cheap trick is coca COLA.


  • A can/bottle of coca cola.
  • A small copper wire brush.
  • A damp rag
  • A pair of safety gloves
  • And a screw driver
  • First locate your battery, you can choose to leave it in the vehicle, or you can take it out. If you leave it in make sure the vehicle stays off for this time. And make sure the battery is cool before you clean it.
  • Next, put on your gloves and get your brush. Start dry brushing the top of the battery which means brush the battery before using the coke. Scrub the terminals, and remove the terminal cables and scrub them too!
  • Now, open your coke and slowly pour it on the top of the battery. As you are pouring start brushing, same as before. Make sure you get the terminals and cables. Scrub till all of its gone or until you are satisfied.
  • Now take you damp rag and wipe every thing down so it don't get sticky.
  • Do not pour water on the battery!
Now you are threw you can re assemble your battery. If you took the battery out of the car you can put it back in your vehicle.

Its fast ,effective, and its so easy even girls can do it!!!

here are a few extra tips.
rc cola and Pepsi work the same
you can use coke to remove rust
and corrosion of other things like,
rusted pots and pans, other rusted car parts
and rusty tools.
