How to Restore a Golf-Cart Battery With Epsom Salt

    Step 1

    Put on protective gloves and eyewear.

    Step 2

    Remove the battery from your golf cart by disconnecting the battery terminals. Golf-cart batteries are generally found under the seat.

    Step 3

    Slide the tip of your flathead screwdriver under the battery cell caps. Pop off the cell caps and be careful not to get any battery acid on you.

    Step 4

    Use a turkey baster to remove half of the battery acid from your battery cell. Put the acid into a glass bottle.

    Step 5

    Mix 8 ounces of Epsom salt with 2 quarts of distilled water. Stir the mixture together with a spoon until the salt is dissolved.

    Step 6

    Fill the battery cells with the Epsom salt using your turkey baster. Replace the battery cell caps.

    Step 7

    Connect the battery to your charging station to charge the battery. Leave the battery overnight to charge the battery.

    Step 8

    Connect the battery to your cart and start the golf cart.
