How to repair a 12 volt car battery using food grade Alum and baking soda for under 5 dollars

In this video I show how to repair a 12 volt car battery for under 5 dollars using food grade Alum “Aluminum Sulfate” and baking soda. A shortened version of this video can be seen at https://youtu.be/boHdHcIWhEM. First I use baking soda to clean the battery and then Alum instead of a acid to bring it back to life. The best price I have found for alum is here https://amzn.to/2LBzZ61 which is enough to do several batteries. Your local feed mills or grocers may carry it as well.

Simple Instructions

1 cup or 8 oz of food grade alum “aluminum sulfate” in a 1 gallon jug then fill the jug with water “it is best to use distilled water”
Same for the baking soda 1 cup per gallon. The baking soda mix is used after draining the acid to neutralize any left over acid. You can then after rinsing with that rinse with plain water to get out the baking soda mix. Then you will put in the alum mix filling to just above the plates and then charge.

TireJect tire sealant 1 month test on rotted 50 psi cart tires that would not hold air

Checking on the cart tires a month after getting them to seal using TireJect. I put 45 psi in these tires a month ago and they don’t appear to have lost any air pressure. Before I put the Tireject in they would not even hold air for a day. All the other tires from the 8 month test video are still holding air without having to add any pressure. You can check out that video here https://youtu.be/aKfUpNPZQQI

I did receive some Tireject for free to test. But i have also paid for as much if not more because I have been so happy with the product. You can order your own here https://amzn.to/2ogSvYe
