Battery acid spill

A rider mower battery tipped over in the trunk of my car while transporting. Most of the fluid leaked out onto the truck surface. it has an odor but has been in check since the freeze of the winter has settled. how can I clean up this spill?

Baking soda to netralize acid, kitty litter to absorb. Copious amounts of water as well.Don’t let this mess become a contaminant. Try to collect it and dispose of properly.

You should have immediately diluted it with water…as much as you can flush into the trunk. By now the paint has been compromised. Work on it asap !

Wear protective gloves…
