Best way to clean up Battery Acid (Actually Alkaline.)?

A battery leaked in my draw. I took everything out and squeezed a lemon over it and brushed it off with a toothbrush. I think I got it all but I'm worried that there are still some particles. How poisonous is this stuff?

    Vinegar & baking soda will neutralize the acid.  I use this on the battery cables to keep the crusting off.

    Why, did you eat some of it? Otherwise, you're safe.

    It will be fine. It's acid and hence dangerous to your skin, eyes, etc. It's not poisonous.
