I have also seen it eat thru a styrofoam coffee cup For neutralizing battery acid I use the baking soda and water or club soda if I happen to have any around.

You should not use club soda or seltzer water for neutralizing battery acid. Club soda is carbonic acid; Coke, Pepsi, and all other carbonated beverages are phosphoric acid. Both are acidic and will not neutralize battery acid.

Club soda is very good for taking out wine or berry stains. The color in berries and wine is mostly anthrocyanins, which turn from purple at high pH to pink or colorless ar low pH.

I have a lot of acid (white powerlery) built up that has migrated to my frame and outside battery cover doors on the outside and hinge. Has alsoflaked black paint off and rusted frame. What mixture of soda and water would I use also could I mix it in a garden sprayer?

Been using baking soda and coke for years on everything from boats, race cars and trailers. Works great. Follow up with a fresh water rinse to remove residue. It is not rocket science chemistry. No mixing required. Simply poor both on and watch the show.
