Yeah some times I get things baclward in my old age. I still stand by milk being excellent for neutralizing an acid and being much easier to clean up than baking soda

OK so I have a really funny joke here but I wouldn't want to seem like my Cheerios were a little to warm this morning so I will save it. I will go back to my server closet now.

It's not that you disagreed with him, it is the tone the internet portrayed it in that prompted me make that comment, which was meant to be humorous. I'm old enough to know that everyone has their own opinions, style of jokes and they way they go about doing things. I don't care about any of that. Say what you will, when and how as well. I can make comments on how I see things as can you or billy from down the street.


Edit: you aren't even getting the saying correct. It's not Cheerios(although good on you for being healthy, seriously) it's wheaties!

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Now if you spill it on yourself (battery or any other acid) you would do best to use milk to rinse it off because mixing a strong acid with a strong base can cause an exothermic reaction that will burn your skin. If acid is in your engine bay however you want to neutralize it quickly which is why you use baking soda. Milk can wash the acidic solution around which can cause further damage because it does not neutralize the acid. Baking soda will neutralize, keep it contained and aid in in drying it up. Take it for what its worth (Bio major, Chem minor with extensive training in cleaning up spills). No hard feelings. I will have some square headlights in the next couple of months and we will be in the same club!

Depends since the chemical reaction of a base reacting to an acid forms water and some kind of salt if I remember my chemistry right.

I'm not a smart man but I know that milk is good for neutralizing a dozen chocolate chip cookies. That's all I have to say about that.

Right. Chemical reactions between acids in bases form water and a salt. in the case of baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) reacting with battery acid (H2SO4) forms carbonic acid but that very quickly breaks down into CO2 and water and Sodium Sulfate which is pretty innert.

H2SO4 + 2NaHCO3 -> Na2SO4 + 2H2O + 2CO2 or something like that.

Edit: and I will now stop being a chemistry nerd. Sorry.

Two guys walk into a bar. One orders a glass of H2O. The second guy says he wants H2O too. The second guy dies.


Hehehe

Soda is extremely acidic, measuring around 2-3 on the pH scale.

Also, I haven't updated my info recently because I was forced to sell my TJ. I am buying a YJ soon and am researching all of the mods I want to do before I get on asking questions.

Any other points I can correct you on please?
Um we do have a smart one. Highfive for correction without major insult.

love my jeep

Don't wait on the storm to pass, learn to wheel in the rain.
