Be sure to avoid any possibility of getting any of this washing solution in the cells by sealing off the holes in the batter3,' caps. Replace any missing or damaged caps. Clean off normal dirt and grease with detergent. Afterwards, rinse the battery with water and dry with a clean cloth or paper towels.
