Yes you can. Take a small amount of baking soda and mix with a drop or two of water just enough to make a paste. Then dip a Q tip in the paste and apply it to the corroded surfaces. This will foam up and remove the battery acid that is still present. Wipe away the foam residue with a wet paper towel. If the metal contact surface still has some corrosion repeat the first step. When all the metal surfaces are corrosion free, take another Q tip and apply a very, very thin layer of Vaseline to the metal parts and it will be as good as new.

How do I repair the rotten wood on my deck

Once you have dry rot in a deck it is very hard to stop completely. It is a fungus, and spreads tendrils in the wood grain. Repairs have to involve chopping away all the rot to sound wood, and then treating it. Simply painting it with something s ineffective.

There are many commercial fungicides, all poisonous, so take care. A popular DIY treatment is a mixture of glycol (concentrated auto antifreeze) and borax, with a bit of liquid soap.

There is usually a lot more rot than meets the eye, often in the joists and bearers. The strength of the decking can then be compromised, and if concerned, ask a builder.

You are often best off just ripping out the whole lot, and replacing it with preservative treated timber which will never get the same problem.

Soles on arch shoes

I would say that any shoe repair shop could help you with this problem. If the rubber is rotten, perhaps it has gotten in contact with gas, oil or some solvents. If it is not rubber, then it may have been kept in a place with too much humidity.

Alternator burns out

You have a faulty battery, that's probably what killed the other alternator. The rotten egg smell is gases coming from your battery. Change the battery before you cook the second alternator.

What's your problemm?chevy colbalt smells like rotten eggs

The rotten egg smell usually occurs from time to time. It comes from the battery being charged by the alternator. However, if it smells continuously there is a problem. It's likely that your alternator is overcharging the battery. This needs to be looked at soon. The alternator will need to be replaced or repaired. Hope this helps.

My 2005 chevy malibus check engine light came on it's running really rough. It also smell like rotten eggs. I have tried the gas cap thing and checked all thefluid levels and still nothing

its your alternator voltage regular failed and your alternator is isnt being limited to 12 vots and its overpowering your electric system. the smell of rotten eggs is your battery over heating and the acid inside is boiling giving off the sulfur based smell. this is unhealthy for you to breath and is a sure sign that your car needs to be repaired. you need to replace your alterantor and battery immeditly or it coud damage your vehicals computer. The new altenator will have a new regulator in it and you will be good.

Smell of rotten eggs, and smoke coming from under neath the battery on the drivers side.

Disconnect the battery and remove it...WEAR PROTECTIVE CLOTHING!! The battery sounds like it is leaking acid and, as such, needs to be replaced ASAP! Once you pull the battery out of the car, only set it down on a surface that will not erode from the acid. If the battery is indeed leaking, you will see the corrosion where the battery was eating away the metal. This will need to be cleaned and neutralized before anything else can happen, if the battery is leaking.

I do think your battery is leaking; sulfuric acid smells like rotten eggs and the smoke is from the acid eating the metal it is coming into contact with.
