I would dust the areas where you saw white bubbling with baking soda and water, to make sure you neutralized the acid... Stuff can leave scars..m

That's a good idea. While working in boat engine rooms I routinely end up sitting on or crawling over large battery banks. Even though I don't actually see acid exposed, for some reason all my jeans have grown many extra holes...
