My son has a little battery-powered lantern that had the batteries corroded in it. Some of the corrosion got on one of the contacts. Can it still be used this way? Will it work as well? Is there a good way of cleaning the corrosion off?

Put some baking soda and water on it and just brush the corrosion off.. The baking soda will neutralize any acid and it will be fine.
