I have a microsoft wireless mouse, now most of you would think that would be the problem lol, but seriously here is the problem: I have not used this mouse in a few months, because I could not find any batteries, but today, while looking at the mouse, I noticed that there seems to be some battery acid, or something, on one of the prong(?) things that the battery rest against. How should I clean this battery acid(if that is what it is)?

You should never leave dead batteries in a device for a long period of time -- the batteries will leak. Scrape it off gently with a wire brush, like a pipe cleaner, and wash your hands when you're done.
