Battery cleaning and maintenance
Good battery maintenance practice can help you prolong the life of your car, truck, bakkie or motorcycle’s battery. Even maintenance free batteries need tending to occasionally. Despite the misleading name, ‘maintenance free’ batteries only mean that the distilled water used in older batteries do not need to be topped up. These batteries come as a sealed unit but still require attention from time to time.
Firstly, regularly check your battery for leaks, corrosion or build-up of dirt and grease. Keep your battery terminals, cables etc. clean by using a suitable battery cleaning solution. Most auto care aisles will stock battery sprays which are safe for use. Alternatively, you can make your own solution at home by mixing 15ml of baking soda with 250ml of hot water. Use an old toothbrush with this solution to clean the battery corrosion and build-up of dirt quickly and easily.
Ensure your engine is switched off when doing this and take care not to burn yourself. Your battery terminals should be disconnected before cleaning commences. Once you have thoroughly cleaned your battery, rinse it with cool water and dry the battery and components properly before reconnecting. We recommend that you use gloves when cleaning your vehicle’s battery as battery discharge is corrosive and potentially harmful.
Remember that disconnecting your battery will affect various settings of your car such as the time but this is nothing serious and can easily be corrected once your car battery is connected again.
